How Is Las Vegas Dealing With It’s Public Health Crisis?


When the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip come to life at night, the city is transformed into a giant playground for visitors from all over the world. The city’s famous hotels, casinos, shows, shopping, and restaurants are open for business, enticing visitors from near and far to experience the entertainment capital of the world.

But it’s the people who live and work in Las Vegas that make the city truly shine. For decades, the city’s residents have balanced work and family obligations with the needs of a dynamic and ever-growing city, and the result is a tight-knit community that’s full of life and character.


Las Vegas is known for its entertainment and gambling. But it is also known for its deadly epidemic of opioid overdoses. This article is the first in a series about how this happened and what we can learn from it. In 2016, the Clark County Coroner’s office recorded more than 1,000 deaths related to drug overdoses.


The bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip may be the first thing visitors notice about the city, but for many Nevadans, the true heart and soul of the city lie in its public health system. This public health system provides health care to more than 70,000 people in southern Nevada, including those who work on the Strip, who live in surrounding communities, and who travel from all over the world to visit the city.

The system also provides care to an additional 350,000 people who live in surrounding counties or who travel to the city for care. The system is the only coordinated health care system in southern Nevada, and its ability to provide high-quality, affordable care to so many people is a testament to the dedication of its health care system.


Las Vegas, a city of 2 million, is facing a public health crisis. The city’s worsening hepatitis A outbreak has infected more than 5,000 people since the beginning of 2018, the majority of whom were not connected to the city’s economy.

No one knows for sure how the outbreak started, but it is likely that person-to-person contact, including sexual contact and sharing of needles, played a major role in transmission.

Most of the cases have been found in neighborhoods where people had little to no access to basic health services, such as homeless encampments and rural areas, which have limited access to medical care.

Nevada Health Response: Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Nevada


Las Vegas has been a hub for people coming into the state to visit the city, and as a result, the city has been hit by COVID-19. The city has been able to contain the infection, but it has led to critical shortages in testing, family planning services and other essential public health services.

This is a particularly difficult situation for the public health system in Las Vegas, which has an extensive network of doctors who are not able to provide services due to a lack of supplies.

State and local governments are working together to address this public health crisis. The state Department of Health, with assistance from the Department of Health and Human Services, is working with local health departments to establish a coordinated health system that works with hospitals, clinics, and labs to collect and analyze all available information.

The Department has provided technical assistance to local health departments to assist in the collection, analysis, and reporting of data.

The public health resources on the internet are not always reliable, so clinics and hospitals in Las Vegas are being asked to do more to inform patients about the status of the disease. This article is the first in a series about how this happened and what we can learn about it. In January of this year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released the findings of a study that found a higher than expected percentage of patients with COVID-19 were older than 50 years old.


The Southern Nevada Health District


The Southern Nevada Health District, which encompasses Clark and Washoe counties in southern Nevada, is working closely with the state Department of Health to respond to the public health crisis. The Department has provided technical assistance to the Health District to assist in the collection, analysis, and reporting of data.

The Health District is also working closely with the state Department of Health to ensure that all resources are being used effectively to prevent further spread of the virus and to address the needs of those impacted by the outbreak. The Health District has also established an emergency operations center to ensure that all necessary resources are being mobilized to appropriately respond to the public health crisis.


The Southern Nevada Health District, which includes Clark County, is the primary public health agency in southern Nevada and serves an area of more than 3 million people. The Health District is working to ensure that people know about the COVID-19 outbreak and how they can protect themselves and their families. The Health District has established a hotline and social media accounts to provide accurate and timely information to the public.

The Health District is also working with local health departments and hospitals to ensure that people have access to medical care and to family planning services.


The Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD), a public health agency serving southern Nevada, is the lead agency responding to the hepatitis A outbreak and COVID-19.

The district is a partnership between the state of Nevada and local governments that provides a coordinated system of health care to residents, including those who work on the Strip and those who live in surrounding communities. More than 70,000 people in southern Nevada, including those who work on the Strip, who live in surrounding communities, and who travel to the city for care, are served by the system.

The system also provides care to an additional 350,000 people who live in counties surrounding the city or who travel to the city for care.


Las Vegas is the home to the Southern Nevada Health District, the state’s only dedicated public health system, which is responsible for providing health care to more than 70,000 people in southern Nevada, including those who work on the Strip and those who live in surrounding communities.

The Southern Nevada Health District is the only system in southern Nevada that is responsible for providing health care to large numbers of people in rural areas, who live in neighboring counties, and who travel to the city for care.
