Genoa, Nev. — Two Douglas County men, one in his 60s and another in his 90s, were reported Thursday to have succumbed to coronavirus. That brings the toll to 35 deaths in the county.
The number of active cases continues to drop by around 50 a week. However, the state is reporting the positivity rate in Douglas is at 8.8 percent. The county decreased to 274 active cases on Thursday with 2,348 recoveries. Mass asymptomatic testing is back 9-10:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center.
The Dangberg Historic Home Ranch is scheduled to reopen 1 p.m. Thursday. The ranch has essentially been shut down since the beginning of the pandemic. I’ve got a release from them I’ll post later this morning.
As of last night, the question of whether and where Douglas County commissioners are meeting in person on Thursday remains up in the air. It needs to be finalized by tonight at least.
We had a few flurries roll in with the cold north wind on Thursday night. There was no accumulation and the roads are clear this morning. That looks like just about it for March, with no precipitation in the forecast through next week.
We could see 70 degrees and sunny skies on Sunday before it starts cooling off again. The temperature roller coaster that is spring has arrived.
Today expect a high temperature of 55 degrees with the wind out of the northeast at 5-10 mph.
