Genoa, Nev. — The 38th Douglas County death attributed to the coronavirus outbreak was reported Thursday night by Carson City Health and Human Services. There were 270 active cases with a rolling average of 14 new cases a day and a test positivity of 20 percent.
Douglas County’s vaccination rate went from 51.8 percent of residents older than 12 to 52.4 percent as 255 more were vaccinated. A walk-in clinic is at the Douglas County Senior Center 4-5:30 p.m. Thursday.
Air quality in the Gardnerville Ranchos is just barely in the moderate range this morning, but expect that to deteriorate today as the winds shift to bring more smoke into Carson Valley by this afternoon.
Highway 395 north to Susanville is open this morning. Neither the Dixie nor the Caldor fires are anywhere near contained this morning, but the satellite mapping shows Caldor may well be slowing down. The Dixie Fire has broken up into three or four separate fires, which may allow firefighters to isolate and knock it down.
The Dangberg Home Ranch Art Roundup is at the CVIC Hall 4-8 p.m. Saturday. Tickets at the door are $25, or you can get them online at Dangberg.org
Tickets are available for the Sept. 25 annual dinner dance that gives Candy Dance its name at http://www.genoanevada.org/visitors/candy_dance/candy_dance_tickets.php
Miranda Rae Love is performing at the dinner which is being catered by Carson City BBQ.
Today’s forecast calls for widespread smoke and haze after noon with the high climbing to 86 degrees. We could see winds out of the west at 5-15 mph, gusting to 25 mph tonight.
