A graph showing the daily number of confirmed cases of COVID-19, as well as a curve of cumulative cases, updated to Jan. 5. The left axis shows the number of new cases per day based on the date of testing, while the right shows the cumulative number.

The rate of recent cases of confirmed COVID-19 continues to trend downward as data released Tuesday shows a third week of a declining case rate.

Clark County Public Health’s Jan. 5 update showed that in the county there were 324.87 cases per 100,000 population in the past 14 days. That rate is below the 350 per 100,000 of population that statewide guidelines determine as the threshold between high and moderate-risk counties for the purpose of determining what level of reopening of in-person K-12 education is advised. School districts in moderate-risk counties are advised to focus on bringing both elementary and middle school students into in-person learning.

While declining in recent case rates, Clark County continues to see more cases in the county overall, with Tuesday’s update reporting there had been 13,815 confirmed COVID-19 cases since the outbreak began. There were 1,004 active cases reported by Public Health, which are cases in the isolation period.

No new COVID-19 deaths have been reported since the new year, with Clark County’s total remaining at 144, Public Health reported Tuesday.

There were 76 patients with confirmed COVID-19 hospitalized in Clark County, Public Health reported, with an additional four awaiting test results.
