LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - JUNE 25: Entertainer Emilie Condamine (C) participates in a fashion show in front of the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign on the Las Vegas Strip to kick off the pro-mask wearing campaign "Mask Up for Nevada" put on by Experience Strategy Associates amid the spread of the coronavirus on June 25, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. On Wednesday, Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak signed a directive requiring people to wear face coverings in public places throughout the state beginning on June 26 in response to a four-week upward trend of new daily COVID-19 cases. The governor also cited an increase in confirmed and suspected COVID-19 hospitalizations since the state entered Phase 2 of the state's reopening plan on May 29 as a reason for the mandate.

The county announced 1,315 new cases while the state reported 1,447 new cases.

Nevada was included on the “Red Zone” list because it had more than 100 new cases per 100,000 residents last week and had more than 10% of it’s diagnostic tests results come back positive.
