Nye County Emergency Management was notified Tuesday evening of two more positive test results for the Coronavirus (COVID-19) within the County. One is a woman in her 60s, and the other is a woman in her 70s. Both are reported to be residents of Pahrump. Both women are in quarantine.
These are the second and third confirmed positive COVID-19 test results reported on Tuesday. A male in his 40s, a resident of Amargosa Valley, was reported this morning.
That patient is self-quarantined in his home. Emergency Services is continuing to investigate the source of the infection for all three patients and retracing his movements for the past few weeks. The public is urged to follow the governor’s guidance and Stay Home For Nevada.
Last week, state health officials cleared a Beatty resident from self-isolation who had tested positive for COVID-19. Four positive test results have been reported to the County to date.
The County has set up a resource page for information and updates from the County, State and other agencies.
