Researchers Monitoring Wastewater In Truckee Meadows For COVID-19 Prevalence
By Lucia Starbuck

The Nevada Water Innovation Institute is monitoring wastewater samples from the Truckee Meadows region to determine the prevalence of COVID-19 in the community.

The institute has been collecting wastewater samples from three water reclamation facilities in the area weekly, since June, and analyzing archived samples since April. 

The main goal is to detect an inactive fragment of COVID-19, which can potentially determine the level of COVID-19 in the community.

So far, the data show that the level of COVID-19 has been relatively stable since June, even though Washoe County Health District data show that the number of cases of COVID-19 increased significantly from June to July.

The researchers say it’s possible the number of people who were tested in June don’t reflect all of the actual cases that month.

The research team has plans to expand sample collection in areas like hot spots and high-density occupancy facilities.

California Governor Signs Eviction Relief Bill Amid Virus
By The Associated Press

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed a law that temporarily bans evictions for people who have not paid their rent because of the coronavirus. 
 

The law does not forgive the missed payments. Landlords can ask a judge to order the tenant to pay it back.
 

In April, the Judicial Council of California halted most eviction and foreclosure proceedings during the pandemic. But those protections are set to end on Wednesday.
 

The pandemic has devastated California’s economy, causing millions of people to lose their jobs as the government ordered businesses to close to slow the spread of the disease.

California OKs Bill to Flex Power On Prescription Drugs
By The Associated Press

California lawmakers have passed a bill to use the most populous state’s market power to lower the cost and increase the availability of prescription drugs for its nearly 40 million residents. 
 

The state Legislature on Monday approved a measure that would require the state to create partnerships designed to increase competition, lower prices and reduce shortages for generic prescription drugs.
 

The bill stops short of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s January budget proposal for the state to create its own generic label. Sen. Richard Pan cited shortages spurred by the coronavirus pandemic as one rationale for his bill.

Sisolak Extends Nevada Eviction Moratorium 45 Days
By The Associated Press

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has announced plans to extend an eviction moratorium 45 days to provide relief to an estimated 250,000 renters facing the prospect of losing their housing because of the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.
 

He made the decision Monday, a day before the moratorium was set to expire. Fears of a widespread eviction crisis have been compounded by delays in state assistance and programs.
 

A research center says about 38% of renters have been laid off since the start of the pandemic and delays in unemployment insurance payouts have denied them money they may otherwise use to pay rent. 

The moratorium is now set to expire Oct. 16.

Fewer Wildlife Deaths In California As Traffic Dips During Pandemic
By The Associated Press

A study shows that California’s stay-at-home order in response to the COVID-19 outbreak seems to have saved some wildlife. Decreased traffic resulted in fewer collisions with mountain lions, deer and other large animals. 
 

The Ventura County Star reports a study by the Road Ecology Center at the University of California, Davis found traffic declined by about 75% after the emergency order went into effect in March.
 

The number of animals struck and killed by vehicles also fell, including a 58% decrease in fatal crashes involving mountain lions between the 10 weeks before and 10 weeks after the order.

California Charts New And Slower Course On Reopening
By The Associated Press

California’s new plan for reopening businesses amid the pandemic is more gradual than the first attempt earlier this summer, with the hope of preventing another virus surge. Gov. Gavin Newsom described the approach Friday as simple and slow. Counties will move through a four-tiered, color-coded system based on their virus cases and positive test rates.
 

Businesses can add more customers or expand services based on what tiers they are in. The state’s approach doesn’t ever allow for more than 50% capacity in indoor restaurants, movie theaters, gyms and other indoor venues.

By Lucia Starbuck

The Nevada State Public Health Laboratory announced Friday that a Washoe County resident is the first person in the United States reported to be infected with COVID-19 twice.

Dr. Mark Pandori, the director of the Nevada State Public Health Laboratory, said, “Reinfection cases are a potential warning sign that it is possible to catch COVID-19 more than once, and with unpredictable severity.”

By The Associated Press

MGM Resorts is laying off 18,000 people as an unchecked pandemic leaves economic scars across a broad swath of U.S. industries, particularly those that rely on healthy crowds of people. KUNR’s Jayden Perez reports.
 

The layoffs at MGM cap a wave of job cuts and buyouts this week across a broad array of industries.

Sisolak says in-person voting safe but wants to avoid lines
By The Associated Press

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak says it will be safe to vote in person this November. But he prefers that people stay home and vote by mail or vote early to avoid big Election Day crowds at polling places. 
 

Sisolak and other Democrats on Friday defended a law the governor signed earlier this month to automatically mail ballots to the state’s active voters ballots ahead of the November election. President Donald Trump’s campaign has challenged the law in court. The governor says he encourages people to vote by mail, especially if they have an underlying medical condition or have any symptoms of the virus.
