A total of 350 people in Clark County have tested positive for coronavirus, the Health District reported. Statewide, 420 people have tested positive, the Department of Health and Human Services reports.

The Washoe County Health District reported seven new cases on Wednesday to bring the total in the Reno area to 57. Smaller Nevada counties — for instance, Douglas (three cases) and Lyon County (one) — have also been hit.

Statewide, 5,117 people have been tested.
