Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) is reporting a presumptive positive case of COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus. This is the first case reported in the Quad County region: Carson City, Douglas, Lyon, and Storey counties. The test has been sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for confirmation. The test results will be considered “presumptive positive” until they are confirmed by the CDC.
The patient is a female Carson City resident in her 70’s. This is a travel related incident. Her recent travel history includes a flight she took from the San Jose International Airport into the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, during her travels she was not symptomatic.
After feeling symptoms, the patient contacted her health care provider who sent her to the Carson City Health and Human Services hotline. Through the hotline a test was arranged and conducted in a manner to prevent exposure to our community. Carson City Health and Human Services is contact-tracing and monitoring the patient as well as her husband. Both are self-isolating inside their home.
While this is a serious public health threat, the immediate risk to the general public in Carson City, Douglas, Lyon, and Storey counties is considerably low.

The Carson City Health Department just announced that a “presumptive” case of “Covid-19 virus” has shown up in Carson City. A sample was taken from the person, a sample that is now enroute to be tested by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to determine if it is what they fear it is.
The elderly woman was visiting San Jose, CA and became ill. She returned to Carson City and medical officials say samples they took from her are being tested at the CDC. However, conversations with the woman produced a comment from her that she woke up this morning feeling very good. Much better than previous days.
But there is the added element of the 49 Nevadans aboard the cruise ship Grand Princess who have been declared “asymptomatic” which means they may be carrying the virus but they show no symptoms. Governor Sisolak offered to send all 49 to a Nevada military base where they could carry out their two week incubation period to determine if they really do have the Covid-19 virus. But the CDC turned him down. So they’re waiting to find out where they’re going to go to fulfill the rest of their 14 day confinement.
More information as it’s made available.

Forty-nine Nevada residents onboard the Grand Princess cruise ship in Oakland are boarding flights back to Nevada where they will be isolated in their homes until doctors know, one way or another, that they have, or don’t have, the Corona Virus.
Here’s the story in This is Reno newspaper. Click here.
Fire started inside the home. Appears accidental. No one home at the time.
Fire at home off Airport Road at Sherman. Both family dogs were rescued.
Carson City Firefighters raced to the scene of a house fire at Airport and Sherman. The neighbors called 9-1-1 Wednesday afternoon and said thick clouds of black smoke were coming out and rising on the south side of the dwelling. Although no humans were home, two family dogs were home and were promptly rescued. They both appear to be okay.
Firefighters say the fire started about midway between the front and back of the home. Interior and roof damage were considerable. Firefighters told the owners that the dwelling is uninhabitable. The two men who live in the house are being given emergency shelter by the American Red Cross.
Heavy interior damage means the two occupants will not be back in their own home for quite a while. No specific cause has been determined according to firefighters.
