Genoa, Nev. — I’ll follow up on the fatal collision at the end of Tillman Lane that occurred just before 5 p.m. Tuesday. It has just been a week since the big crash at the bottom of Spooner summit and yet there is another person dead in a collision who was not a driver.
The Nov. 9 collision near Centerville may have been caused by a medical issue. It involved two vehicles with the driver of one being ejected, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.
Community coronavirus testing has been suspended, Carson City Health and Human Services announced on Tuesday. Back in the early days of the contagion, the agency and the National Guard would test hundreds of people at a time. But the demand for testing has been overwhelmed by vaccinations.
While no longer offering testing, the agency is still conducting vaccination clinics, including one at Harrah’s in Stateline 9 a.m. to noon Thursday. If you need a test, you can visit https://my.castlighthealth.com/corona-virus-testing-sites/ to find out where to get one.
I expect we’ll start to hear more candidate announcements now that the redistricting chess board is set for the 2022 election. Douglas still has to work on its new districts for commission, school board and East Fork fire protection district board, among others.
I did some grocery shopping on Tuesday afternoon before the collision, and you would have thought it was the day before Thanksgiving. Store shelves were stripped, and the traffic was brutal.
The weather is expected to be mostly sunny and cool today with a high of 53 degrees and the wind out of the north at 5 mph this afternoon.
