 Reno/Sparks, NV – El Centro Regional de Información reporta 108 casos nuevos de COVID-19 en el Condado de Washoe, la cifra más alta de casos de COVID-19 en un solo día. El récord previo de 90 casos había sido establecido el 24 de junio.

Los casos activos de COVID-19 en el Condado de Washoe también alcanzaron un nuevo récord con 806, rompiendo el récord de 748 del 24 de junio.

Esta afluencia no se debe a la acumulación de trabajo en el laboratorio ni a brotes en grandes instalaciones.

“El aumento está vinculado a que las personas volvieron a sus actividades normales, cotidianas, anteriores al COVID-19”, dijo Kevin Dick, Oficial de Salud del Distrito del Condado de Washoe. “Nuestros rastreadores de contactos están viendo grupos pequeños y generalizados relacionados con residentes que se reúnen con personas fuera de su hogar”.

Los dos mayores aumentos de un solo día en el Condado de Washoe han ocurrido en los últimos tres días. La transmisión comunitaria de COVID-19 es desenfrenada en el Condado de Washoe y las actividades más comunes entre los casos positivos de COVID-19 son:

  • Ir a trabajar estando enfermo
  • Asistir a reuniones familiares y de amigos en interiores y exteriores.
  • Compras minoristas, incluida la tienda de comestibles.
  • Comer en restaurantes
  • Fiestas (despedidas de soltera, baby showers, fiestas de graduación, bodas)

El equipo de Administración de Incidentes y el Distrito de Salud del Condado de Washoe apoyan firmemente la directiva del Gobernador Sisolak que exige que los Nevadenses y visitantes usen coberturas faciales cuando estén en público. Vea la guía de la Directiva aquí, See the directive guidance here. Coberturas faciales, lavarse las manos adecuadamente y distanciarse socialmente son tres comportamientos clave que se recomienda que observen los residentes para desacelerar la transmisión de COVID-19 en nuestra comunidad. A continuación se muestran las estadísticas de COVID-19 del día:

Total de casos de COVID-19 en el Condado de Washoe: 2,512 (+108 desde 6/25)    

  • Fallecimientos: 74 (+0)
  • Recuperaciones: 1,632 (+40)

A record 108 new COVID-19 cases reported in Washoe County

Reno/Sparks, NV – The Regional Information Center is reporting 108 new COVID-19 cases in Washoe County, the highest number of COVID-19 cases in one day. The previous record was 90 cases set on June 24.

Active COVID-19 cases in Washoe County also reached a new high with 806, breaking the record of 748 on June 24.

This influx is not a result of laboratory backlog or any large facility outbreak.

“The increase is tied to people going back to their normal, everyday, pre-COVID-19 activities,” said Kevin Dick, District Health Officer for Washoe County. “Our contact tracers are seeing small, widespread clusters related to residents congregating with people outside their household.”

The two largest single-day increases in Washoe County have occurred in the last three days. Community transmission of COVID-19 is rampant in Washoe County and the most common activities among COVID-19-positive cases are:

  • Going to work while sick
  • Attending indoor and outdoor family/friend gatherings
  • Retail shopping, including the grocery store
  • Restaurant dining
  • Parties (Bridal showers, baby showers, graduation parties, weddings)

The Incident Management team and the Washoe County Health District strongly support Governor Sisolak’s directive that requires Nevadans and visitors to wear face coverings when in public. See the directive guidance here. Face coverings, proper handwashing and social distancing are three key behaviors residents are advised to observe in order to slow the transmission of COVID-19 in our community. Below are the day’s COVID-19 statistics:

  • Total COVID-19 cases in Washoe County: 2,512 (+108 from 6/25)
  • Deaths: 74 (+0)
  • Recoveries: 1,632 (+40)
