NEVADA (KTNV) — Clark County and the Southern Nevada Health District say have been working closely with their partners at the state of Nevada and the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services to respond to COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic.

Together, they say they have secured additional disease investigation and contact tracing resources that have allowed for the collection of expanded data.

As more and better data is collected, they say they remain committed to working with partners to share the information with them and the public.

However, they also say it is important to emphasize that the information provided in the report released by the state does not identify locations where cases were determined to be exposed or clusters of COVID-19 in the community. And noted that places with a higher amount of foot traffic or more employees may be reported as possible exposure locations more often.

Health officials say, agencies will continue to work together to provide the public information that will help them make decisions to keep themselves, their families, and community healthy.
