Nevada officials say public health labs and testing sites could soon face a possible post-holiday surge as people return from holiday gatherings. The state reported 1,414 new coronavirus cases and 23 additional deaths on Monday. The new cases and deaths brought Nevada’s totals to 233,032 cases and 3,206 deaths since the start of the pandemic. Nevada COVID-19 response director Caleb Cage said testing sites had experienced spikes in demand and the number of tests reported to the state also rose after the holidays. He said that it was too soon to determine the effects of large New Year’s gatherings, including those on the Las Vegas Strip.
