County Providing Few Details About Covid Cases

As of this morning, 21 cases have been confirmed, and they do have it broken down by which half of the county. Six cases are in the western part, while the other 15 are in the Truckee area.

The first two reported cases were travel-related, but with people sheltering in place, Trygg says it’s now safe to assume that all other cases are from within the community, so there’s no longer a need to provide that information. There have been no coronavirus related deaths in Nevada County.
