Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak said the recovery plan is designed to build a path forward and safely restart Nevada’s economy.
“We have taken great steps together as a state to keep Nevadans safe against COVID-19, and while we continue to do that, we must now chart a responsible path forward that will get Nevadans back to work under a new normal,” said Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak.
The reopening of the state will happen in phases – the same as when it was closed, following guidance, of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and medical experts.
According to the Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak’s office, the state will continue to remain under the governor’s stay-at-home order, but expanded outdoor and recreational activities, along with providing some relief for small business owners starting Friday, May 1st, 2020, but all bars, nightclubs, malls, large sporting events, and large in-person places of worship will remain closed.
Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak said that in the next couple of weeks, his focus will be moving into phase 1 of the plan on or before May 15th, 2020, and this depends on health officials’ data.
Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak also said that a downward trajectory in cases is necessary to begin talks of reopening, but there was recently a three-day consecutive increase of hospitalizations.
“Our ability to enter the next phase and any subsequent phase of reopening will be determined by the continued commitment of Nevadans to follow aggressive social distancing guidance and requirements,” said Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak.
