Reno/Sparks, NV – The Regional Information Center is reporting two additional COVID-19-related deaths in Washoe County and the largest single-day increase of new COVID-19 cases in Washoe County.

The deceased are a female in her 70s and a male in his 80s, both with underlying health conditions. There are 69 COVID-19-related deaths in Washoe County.

We’re also reporting 61 additional COVID-19 cases in Washoe County, the largest single-day increase. The previous high was 54 news cases reported on May 26 and May 17.

The seven-day moving average for COVID-19 cases in Washoe County is about 35, which is the highest point. The previous high was about 32 on April 14.

“This is a stark reminder that COVID-19 is still spreading at a concerning rate in Washoe County,” said Kevin Dick, Washoe County District Health Officer. “It’s been 98 days since we got our first case in Washoe County and just now we’ve reached the highest point in single-day cases and the seven-day moving average. We thought, and the models told us, our peak was probably behind us. Now we have a new higher peak of daily cases and may be moving higher yet.

“Increased testing commercially at some casinos, the Washoe County drive-through test site and at some Walmart and CVS locations is leading to more cases; however, the rise is also attributed to people in our community failing to practice safe social distancing and mask use. We need to battle this virus together to protect our vulnerable populations and it starts by taking extreme precaution when going out into the community and only going out for essential needs.”
