The Southern Nevada Health District reports a possible case of Coronavirus in Clark County. A man in his 40s who lives in the Vancouver Coastal Health region recently returned from a trip to Wuhan, China. The confirmed cases were reported in Arizona, California, Illinois and Washington state. "We ask that the school board send out a communication to all parents requesting students who or whose families have recently returned from China, to stay at home and keep isolated for a minimum of 17 days for the goal of self-quarantine".
