Public health officials report eight residents in Carson City, Douglas and Lyon counties have tested positive so far.

All cases are self-isolating in their home and are doing well. Carson City Health and Human Services is working to identify close risk contacts to prevent further spread of the disease. Due to medical privacy requirements and to protect their identity, no further information about the cases will be released. 

A third Douglas County case was announced on Wednesday.
