LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak said he's only experiencing mild head congestion since he was diagnosed with COVID-19 late last week.

The Democratic governor said in a statement Monday that he appreciates the support and well wishes and wanted to thank health officials who have been helping him since his test for the coronavirus came back positive on Friday.
