Nevada officials are fining a northern county and an airport more than $5,500 for allowing a campaign event for President Donald Trump in September that drew thousands of people, despite a 50-person crowd limit over the pandemic. The state Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Monday that Douglas County was fined $2,950 and Minden Airport manager ABS Aviation was fined $2,600. Crowd estimates for the Sept. 12 rally in Minden varied, but officials had expected more than 10,000 people. Thousands attended an indoor Trump rally Sept. 13 in southern Nevada that drew $3,000 fine against the owner of the building that hosted it.
