Nevada health officials have reported 391 new COVID-19 cases and 11 deaths.

The officials say Nevada’s two-week positivity rate has been trending down since mid-January and has dropped to 12.8%. Nevada began loosening some restrictions on Monday that Gov. Steve Sisolak put in place to stem a winter surge. Restaurants, casino floors and gyms are now able to be 35% occupied, religious gatherings can be at 50% capacity, and public gatherings can involve 100 people or 35% capacity, whichever is less.
