As of Sunday, Nevada health officials reported a little more than 9,000 new tests had been preformed for COVID-19.

Clark County accounts for fourth fifths of the cases and deaths.

The number of new cases has climbed as Nevada has expanded testing capacity and reopened casinos, restaurants, and other businesses in a limited fashion.
