Las Vegas, Clark County Delay Isolation Unit For Southern Nevada's Homeless

Las Vegas and Clark County have delayed the opening of an isolation unit for homeless people. 

The annex is under construction at Cashman Center. It was supposed to open Monday but the county now says it hopes to have the area open by the end of the week.

The facility will provide a place for homeless people who have been diagnosed with the coronavirus or are showing symptoms of the disease to get medical treatment.
