RENO, Nev. (KOLO) – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will be installing flashing wind warning signs for enhanced driver safety on U.S. 395 in the North Valleys. There will be roadway shoulder closures in place starting Tuesday while crews install the signs.

Researchers in US confirm case of reinfection

Researchers in the US have reported the country’s first confirmed case of coronavirus reinfection.

A 25-year-old man with no known immune disorders or underlying conditions was infected with Covid-19 on two separate occasions, according to a study published in the Lancet Infectious Diseases journal.
