Below is the full COVID-19 report for Oct. 13.
LAS VEGAS (KLAS) Nevada reports 45 deaths, pushing the total over the seven days to more than 160 people, according to data released today. Clark County reported 29 deaths today.
COVID-19 cases were down slightly statewide, with 625 reported statewide and 411 in Clark County.
And test positivity dropped, falling from 8.1% to 7.9% statewide, and from 7.0% to 6.9% in Clark County.
Cases have shifted away from Clark County over the past month of the current COVID-19 spike, but the mask mandate has remained in place statewide. The state is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance on the mask rule. The mandate will remain in place in each county until the following conditions are met:
Clark County is currently at 6.9% test positivity and the case rate is at 115.3,according to the Southern Nevada Health District.
Nevada continues to be labeled a place with high COVID-19 transmission and Clark County remains an area of concern,according to anupdated White House report. The county wasfirst labeled a sustained hot spot on July 5.
Almost all of Nevada is labeled as a high transmission area. The CDC is using cases per 100,000 over the past seven days to determine high transmission.
Nevadas case count grew by 615 in the past day, with 411 in Clark County in the past day. The states total cases are now at 430,170. Clark County has a total of 326,283.Its important to note thatthe state no longer updates the dashboard on the weekendor holidays, which may be why Monday and Tuesday reports show higher case and death totals.
Nevadas test positivity rate is at 7.9%, down from 8.1% yesterday. It fell below 5.0%, the World Health Organizations goal, on May 17 and climbed above it on June 28. Clark Countys rate is at 6.9%, down from 7.0% yesterday.
Of the 45 additional COVID-19-related deaths, 29 were from Clark County. Southern Nevada now accounts for 5,830 of the states 7,412 deaths. The 14-day rolling average is 12 deaths per day.
As of Sept. 30, the Southern Nevada Health District reports there are 158 breakthrough deaths, 482 breakthrough hospitalizations and 10,449 breakthrough cases. The county did not give an update last week.
As of yesterday, a total of 5,073,309 COVID-19 tests have been conducted in Nevada, with an increase of 17,232 since yesterday.
*NOTE: Daily lab data from DHHS and SNHD reports is updated every morning for theprevious day.
The test positivity rate in Clark County has dropped below 8%, which takes the county off the states watch list for elevated transmission risk. If the county can sustain levels for test positivity and testing, state restrictions including mask requirements could be relaxed. A separate measure of the countys case rate currently 115.3 cases per 100,000 population over the past seven days needs to drop below 50 for two straight weeks before the mask mandate can end.
In todays report, Churchill, Douglas, Elko, Humboldt, Lander, Lyon, Mineral, Nye and Washoe counties are flagged.
Clark Countys case rate (521 per 100,000 over the past 30 days) is flagged in data reported today. Test positivity rate (6.9%) and testing (357 tests per day per 100,000) are within the states acceptable range.
Thestates health department reports3,186,931 dosesof the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Nevada,as of Oct. 13.
As of today, 55% of Nevadans currently eligible for the vaccine are fully vaccinated, and more than 63% of the eligible population has initiated vaccinations. Clark County reports that 54% of its eligible residents are fully vaccinated.
NOTE: The state is not updating hospitalization dataonweekendsor holidays.
According to the statesDepartment of Health and Human Services (DHHS), the number of hospitalized patients in Nevada was UNCHANGED in the past day.
The current number of hospitalizations is748 confirmed/suspected cases. Hospitals reported 172 of those patients were in intensive care units, and 106 were on ventilators.To give some perspective, the state set a record high for hospitalized patients on Dec. 13 with 2,025 cases.
The Nevada Hospital Association did not file a weekly COVID update last week. It was expected to return on Oct. 13, but no update has been provided.
The number of people who have recovered from the virus in Southern Nevada continues to increase. The latest county update estimates a total of 310,445 recovered cases; thats 95.1% of all reported cases in the county, according toSNHDs latest report.
The health district providesa daily map with the number of positive tests in each ZIPcodein Clark County.
Nevadareopened to 100% capacity on June 1and social distancing guidelines lifted, helping the state return to mostly pre-pandemic times, with some exceptions.
The CDC reversed course on July 27, saying fully vaccinated Americans in areas with substantial and high transmission should wear masks indoors when in public as COVID-19 cases rise. Most of Nevada falls into those two risk categories.
Nevada said it would adopt the CDCs guidance with the new mask guidelinethat went into effect at 12:01 a.m. on July 30. Thisoverrides Clark Countys employee mask mandate, which went into effect in mid-July.
On Aug. 16, Gov. Sisolak signed a new directivethat allows fully vaccinated attendees at large gatherings to remove their masks, but only if the venue chooses to require everyone in attendance to provide proof of vaccination. Those who have just one shot and are not fully vaccinated would still be allowed to attend, as would children under 12, but both would need to wear masks.
Masks still must be worn when required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local businesses and workplace guidance.
