Governor Steve Sisolak says he won’t be pushed into going too far too fast with the Covid-19 virus battle. Sisolak said Nevada is still in the top 10 states with the worst virus spread. He said “The worst thing that could happen is other high risk states would shut down their economies again, creating a disaster for Nevada.”
Governor Sisolak says Nevada’s infection rate is still too high to be gambling with re-opening bars and indoor restaurants. He said “We’re not there yet.” However he did say he’s thinking about re-evaluating the situation with churches and sporting events – if there’s a way to maintain distance and mask wearing. He knows that the Covid-19 can suddenly explode and spread like a prairie fire if they’re not careful. Sisolak said Nevada is heading in the right direction and he wants to keep going in the right direction for all four major counties in the state.
As far as distressed renters go (and there’s lots of ’em) Governor Sisolak says a ban on evictions remains in place. He added that late unemployment benefits are on their way to desperate Nevadans. Governor Sisolak lamented that Nevada doesn’t have the most up to date computer systems that can work seamlessly with federal offices. But he says the money is coming.
