Nevada Health Response and Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak announced Friday the next steps in the State’s COVID-19 response toward the goal of full economic reopening by June 1.
Beginning in May, the COVID-19 Mitigation and Management Task Force will meet on an as-needed basis. The Task Force was established to coordinate directly with county partners to ensure mitigation and enforcement measures were localized to help slow the spread of the virus. With the Governor delegating mitigation authority to local governments, the Task Force and their ongoing meetings will formally sunset on June 1. Communication and coordination related to public health management and response efforts will return to pre-pandemic status, with a strong partnership between DHHS and DEM.
Additionally, the State will continue calls with the press once a week through the month of May, on Wednesdays at noon. After May, the State will resume communication methods and procedures in place prior to the pandemic and on an as-needed basis.
The State continues to encourage Nevadans who have not yet been vaccinated to take advantage of opportunities to access the life-saving vaccine. To learn more about how to schedule an appointment, visit NVCOVIDFighter.org.
“Vaccines are a key tool to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our State and keep us on our path toward full reopening,” said Gov. Sisolak. “If you have already been vaccinated, please encourage your friends, family and loved ones to protect themselves.”
