California, Nevada likely seeing increase in COVID-19 cases due to Labor Day, officials say

Some areas of the country are beginning to see an uptick in COVID-19 cases that may be due to Labor Day weekend gatherings, officials said.

“It’s been 2 1/2 weeks since Labor Day,” Ghaly said. “We’re starting to see what we think is attributable to Labor Day.”

In particular, case rates, COVID-19-related emergency department visits and new COVID-19 hospitalizations are all showing an uptick and are “areas of concern,” Ghaly said.
