The COVID-19 vaccine is proven to reduce the chances of contracting, or being hospitalized from, COVID-19 and the Delta variant. The Delta variant is the most dominant in Washoe County and most people hospitalized with the Delta Variant are unvaccinated.

The vaccine is also readily available for your convenience at the Reno-Sparks Livestock and Events Center (sign up for an appointment here) or at your local drug store. Children between the ages of 12-17 must have a parent with them when receiving the vaccine.

Next drawing for Vax Nevada Days is set for July 29

1 muerte adicional relacionada con la variante de COVID-19 Delta, un hombre en sus 30 años no vacunado, y sin condiciones de salud subyacentes

1 muerte adicional relacionada con la variante de COVID-19 Delta, un hombre en sus 30 años no vacunado, y sin condiciones de salud subyacentes

100 nuevos casos de COVID-19 de la variante Delta reportados desde la semana pasada; 218 en total

Julio 22, 2021. Reno/Sparks, NV – El Centro Regional de Información está reportando una muerte adicional relacionada con la variante Delta del COVID-19 en el condado de Washoe. El fallecido es un hombre de unos 30 años sin condición de salud subyacente y que no había sido vacunado contra el COVID-19.

A continuación, se presentan algunos números actualizados de la variante de COVID-19 Delta en el condado de Washoe.

  • 4- Total de muertes relacionadas con la variante de COVID-19 Delta reportadas el Condado de Washoe desde el 1 de julio; los cuatro casos no habían recibido la vacuna contra el COVID-19.
  • 218- Se han reportado casos totales de la variante de COVID-19 Delta en el condado de Washoe, que son 100 más desde el informe de la semana pasada.
  • 19- Casos de la variante Delta hospitalizados; 17 de esos casos no fueron vacunados.
  • 66- Casos activos de Delta que aun no se han recuperado.

“Aquellos que no han recibido una vacuna contra el COVID-19 tienen el mayor riesgo de contraerse, ser hospitalizados y morir de COVID-19”, dijo Kevin Dick, oficial de salud del distrito en el condado de Washoe. “Los que están optando por no vacunarse están contribuyendo en gran medida al aumento de casos. El Estado de Nevada y el Condado de Clark han restablecido las medidas de mitigación de COVID-19 para frenar este reciente aumento y podríamos vernos obligados a considerar acciones similares si estos aumentos continúan”. 

Según el tablero de Nevada Health Response COVID-19, la tasa de positividad de las pruebas en el condado de Washoe es de un 7.7%, que se ha más que duplicado en los últimos 30 días. La  media móvil de 7 días para los nuevos casos por día está en 45, que se ha duplicado en los últimos 14 días.

Según la Asociación de Hospitales de Nevada (NHA) hay 39 pacientes hospitalizados en el condado de Washoe que están confirmados o sospechosos de tener COVID-19, lo que supone un aumento con respecto a los 22 del 10 de junio. NHA dijo que el 64% de las camas de hospital con licencia están ocupadas en el condado de Washoe.

El tablero estatal informa que el 56.51% de los residentes del Condado de Washoe de 12 años o más están completamente vacunados y el 48.17% de todos los residentes del Condado de Washoe están completamente vacunados. Como recordatorio, las personas completamente vacunadas ya no tienen que ponerse en cuarentena si se exponen a un caso infeccioso y permanecen libres de síntomas. Los que no están vacunados deben hacer cuarentena si están expuestos.

Las vacunas contra el COVID-19 son seguras y eficaces para la protección contra el COVID-19; sin embargo, los individuos vacunados deben ser conscientes de que ninguna vacuna es 100% efectiva. La transmisión de COVID-19 está ocurriendo a niveles sustanciales en el condado de Washoe y sigue existiendo el riesgo de que las personas vacunadas puedan infectarse si están expuestas a otras personas con la enfermedad. Si bien las posibilidades de infectarse son mucho menores que si un individuo no está vacunado, el riesgo de infección se multiplica si los individuos tienen múltiples exposiciones a través de sus actividades. El riesgo de hospitalización o muerte para las personas vacunadas es extremadamente bajo, incluso si se infectan. 

Se insta a los residentes mayores de 12 años a vacunarse lo antes posible y a considerar la información de fuentes confiables al tomar la decisión de vacunarse. Las vacunas están disponibles y se proporcionan de forma gratuita, independientemente del seguro o el estado migratorio.     

La vacuna contra el COVID-19 se ofrece todos los lunes, miércoles y viernes en el Centro de Eventos Ganaderos Reno-Sparks de 8:30 a 11:30 a.m. son bienvenidos sin cita previa, pero se recomiendan citas. Suscríbete a una cita aquí.

Las farmacias locales y las tiendas de comestibles también están ofreciendo la vacuna. Vea una lista completa aquí.

Si está mostrando síntomas de COVID-19, debe  quedarse en casa,  aislarse de los demás y hacerse una prueba de  COVID-19 con el Distrito de Salud.

Hay varios eventos comunitarios de vacunas contra el COVID-19 esta semana que se pueden encontrar aquí, incluido el viernes en los parques Idlewild y Rock y el Sábado en Northern Nevada PRIDE en Wingfield Park.

El Centro Regional de Información de COVID-19 está trabajando para entregar actualizaciones a la comunidad sobre COVID-19 de manera unificada. Mientras que los publicados son enviados periódicamente para eventos significativos, siempre se pueden ver los resultados diarios en nuestro sitio, https://covid19washoe.com/, nuestro Boletín de COVID-19, y en Twitter @COVID19Washoe.

1 additional COVID-19 Delta variant-related death reported – unvaccinated male, 30s, no underlying health conditions

1 additional COVID-19 Delta variant-related death reported – unvaccinated male, 30s, no underlying health conditions

100 new COVID-19 Delta variant cases reported since last week; 218 total

July 22, 2021. Reno/Sparks, NV – The COVID-19 Regional Information Center is reporting an additional COVID-19 Delta variant-related death in Washoe County. The deceased is a male in his 30s with no underlying health conditions and had not been vaccinated for COVID-19.

Below are some updated COVID-19 Delta variant numbers in Washoe County:

  • 4 – Total COVID-19 Delta variant-related deaths reported in Washoe County since July 1; all four cases had not received the COVID-19 vaccine.
  • 218 – Total COVID-19 Delta variant cases have been reported in Washoe County, which is 100 additional since the report last week.
  • 19 –Hospitalized Delta variant cases; 17 of those cases were not vaccinated.
  • 66 – Active Delta cases have yet to recover.

“Those who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine have the greatest risk of contracting, being hospitalized and dying from COVID-19,” said Kevin Dick, District Health Officer in Washoe County. “Those who are choosing not to get vaccinated are contributing greatly to the increase in cases. The State of Nevada and Clark County have both reinstated COVID-19 mitigation measures to curb this recent surge and we might be forced to consider similar actions if these increases continue.”  

According to the Nevada Health Response COVID-19 dashboard, the test positivity rate in Washoe County is a 7.7%, which has more than doubled in the last 30 days. The 7-day moving average for new cases per day is at 45, which has doubled in the last 14 days.

According to the Nevada Hospital Association (NHA), there are 39 hospitalized patients in Washoe County who are confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19, which is up from 22 on June 10. NHA said 64% of licensed hospital beds are occupied in Washoe County.

The state dashboard reports that 56.51% of Washoe County residents 12 years and older are fully vaccinated and 48.17% of all Washoe County residents are fully vaccinated. As a reminder, fully vaccinated persons no longer have to quarantine if exposed to an infectious case and remain symptom free. Those who are unvaccinated must quarantine if exposed.

The COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective for protection against COVID-19; however, vaccinated individuals should be aware that no vaccine is 100% effective. COVID-19 transmission is occurring at substantial levels in Washoe County and there remains a risk that vaccinated individuals can be infected if they are exposed to others with the disease. While the chances of being infected are much lower than if an individual is not vaccinated, the risk of infection is multiplied if individuals have multiple exposures through their activities. The risk of hospitalization or death for vaccinated individuals is extremely low even if they do become infected. 

Residents 12 and older are urged to get vaccinated as soon as possible, and to consider information from reliable sources when making the decision to be vaccinated. Vaccinations are readily available and provided free of charge regardless of insurance or immigration status.     

The COVID-19 vaccine is being offered every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are recommended. Sign up for an appointment here.

Local pharmacies and grocery stores are offering the vaccine as well. See a full list here.

If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19, you need to stay home, isolate from others, and get a COVID-19 test with the Health District.

There are several community COVID-19 vaccine events this week that can be found here, including Friday at Idlewild and Rock parks and Saturday at Northern Nevada PRIDE at Wingfield Park.
