Confirmed Cases

Reporting COVID-19 Case

This page will be updated as confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the UNLV community are reported to the university. UNLV will only include confirmed cases through which other members of the university community may have been exposed to COVID-19.

When an individual is confirmed to have COVID-19, the Southern Nevada Health District determines who they may have had close contact with and guidance is provided directly to those individuals. Please know that if there is a need for anyone to be quarantined or tested, they will be contacted by either the Southern Nevada Health District and/or the UNLV Wellness Center.

Continued social distancing is vital to slowing the spread of COVID-19. Please continue to take personal health precautions and follow the guidance of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention including how to protect yourself, what to do if you are sick, and resources for managing anxiety and stress. Additional resources are available on the UNLV Wellness Center website.

The full report of COVID-19 cases in Clark County is available on the Southern Nevada Health District’s website and statewide cases are available through the Nevada Health Response website.
