Carson City Jail
A man being held inside the Carson City Jail tried to escape by digging his way out of the building. He was in a holding cell that had lighting fixtures overhead…fixtures that appeared to be removable. So the inmate tried. And he succeeded…sorta.
The inmate was able to pull out a light fixture and then went to work on pulling out ceiling materials so he could crawl up into the crawl space above the holding area.
As it turned out, the inmate wandered among the wires and posts and was finally making enough noise that jail guards knew there was something up. So they figured out where the would-be escaping inmate was. They brought him down and checked him for injuries. Then they escorted him to a more secure jail cell.
Nice try. But it’s going to be added to whatever charges were already on the books against him.

How to Perform Health Screenings of your Child Before School Each Day
Carson City— With the anticipation of students and employees once again physically going back to school in Carson City this week, the Carson City School District has provided a guide for parents to use to perform health and wellness screenings of their student(s) before they step on a school bus or enter a school campus each day.
In a Daily Self-Screening tool available on the CarsonCitySchools.com “Parent Tab,” the district reiterated its concern for the health and well-being of all those caring for their students. The Daily Self-Screening tool directs parents and students to perform a self-assessment of their health–every day–before leaving their home.
The daily health and wellness check focuses on specific symptoms students or family members may have experienced within the last 24 hours. They also characterize those symptoms as “new” and “different” from on-going health issues such as asthma, allergies, reflux, COPD, etc. These symptoms would be “Not Normal” to the parent or the student.
In addition to identifying symptoms, the Daily Self-Screening tool advises what families should do if any member of their household experiences any of the listed symptoms within the past 24-hour period. Namely, contact the local health department and arrange for testing.
The school district is also advising parents to visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at CDC.gov for the most up-to-date information. From the CDC website, individuals may take a Coronavirus Self-Checker survey to guide and help them make decisions on when to seek testing and appropriate medical care.
The school district webpage also details hotlines and other online resources such as GetHealthyCarsonCity.org for families who feel they may have been exposed to a close contact who is positive for COVID-19. The Carson City Health and Human Services COVID-19 Hotline is 775-283-4789, and the Washoe County Health District COVID-19 Hotline is 775-328-2427.
The Carson City School District wants to remind all parents that school children need to be meticulously evaluated by their parents before they head off to school – even before they step onto a big yellow bus or if they walk to school. School district officials say children must be screened by their parents even before they leave home. If parents see anything out of the ordinary like a cough, a slight fever or shortness of breath, they should go to their doctor, not to school. All it takes in one Covid-19 kid to infect a whole school.
If the child shows any of the above symptoms, they should be immediately taken to the Carson City Health Department for testing. The Covid-19 virus is extremely dangerous and only recently has targeted young children along with others who have been ordered to stay at home for 14 days to determine if the virus has been successfully fought off by their body’s immune system.
For more more information call Carson City Health and Human Services at 775-283-4789.
Remember, all parents must take a close look at their children to determine whether they have a cough, slight fever or any shortness of breath. If they do, DON’T SEND THEM TO SCHOOL WHERE THEY COULD INFECT OTHERS. Call CCHHS for instructions at 775-283-4789.
These situations are playing out all over the country and in many school districts children are attending school via computer from home. The virus affects young children as well as the elderly. We’re far from being out of the woods yet and won’t be until there is a vaccine available – probably right after the first of the year. Treatment therapies are being researched as well.
