Health Officials Brace for Post-Holiday Surge

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 23 deaths and 1,414 new coronavirus cases on Monday — about half the jump reported a day earlier. Thousands of visitors flocked to the Las Vegas Strip on New Year’s Eve in defiance of state public health orders, which limit large gatherings and require face coverings.
