Washoe Co. Health District reassures community: COVID-19 cases are not community spread

Washoe County health officials say the area’s two cases of coronavirus are not the result of community spread. The health district says both of the county’s cases are tied to travel-and there’s been no local transmission of COVID-19. Anyone who’s feeling sick is urged not to go to the emergency room – and instead call the health district to determine whether you should get a drive-thru test.
