New Year’s revelers urged to get tested for COVID-19

The state’s COVID-19 Task Force is urging you to get tested for coronavirus if you celebrated New Year’s Eve with people from outside your household. They say anyone who did participate in parties should act as if they have the virus-since asymptomatic spread is so common. The state’s positivity rate over the last two weeks is around 20 percent. Storey County remains the only county in the state not flagged for elevated disease transmission.
