LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - Nevada health officials reported 391 new COVID-19 cases and 11 deaths Monday.

The latest numbers reported by the state bring the pandemic totals in Nevada to 288,739 known cases and 4,720 known deaths.

Nevada’s two-week positivity rate has been trending down since mid-January and dropped to 12.8%, according to data posted Monday.

Nevada began loosening some restrictions on Monday that Gov. Steve Sisolak put in place to stem a winter surge. Restaurants, churches, mosques, casino floors and gyms were all able to be at 35% occupancy and public gatherings could be at 100 people or 35% capacity, whichever is less.
