More than 700 visitors to Nevada tested positive for COVID-19 over a span of a little over four months, according to data from state officials.

There were 691 people who tested positive while in Nevada between June 1 and October 3, per figures from the Department of Health and Human Services.

The majority of those cases were visitors from the neighboring states of California and Arizona, with 471 people testing positive.

There was no information on what part of Nevada they visited.

Another 21 people tested positive in their home state after visiting Nevada and were possibly infectious during their trip. Seven were noted as visiting Clark County.

All but three of those 21 people were from California, per the state’s data. Two were from Arizona and one was from Ohio.
