Nevada's Outbreak Death Toll Reaches 219; State Joins Pact

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada health officials report at least 219 deaths statewide from the coronavirus outbreak, an increase of 13.

The Department of Health late Monday also reported nearly 4,700 cases of COVID-19. Nevada and Colorado on Monday joined a western regional pact to help fight the outbreak while moving closer to reopening businesses and modifying stay-at-home orders.

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak and Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said Monday the five-state Western States Pact has a shared vision that puts science ahead of politics.
