Pandemic or no Pandemic a state needs an Attorney General 24/7

Attorney General Ford Receives 2nd COVID-19 Vaccine and Speaks to Local Doctor About the Importance of Getting Vaccinated

Carson City, NV – On February 4, 2021 Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford received his second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine as a member of law enforcement. Law enforcement officers are currently eligible for a vaccine under the “Public Safety Prioritization Lane” outlined in the Nevada Health Response COVID-19 Vaccine Playbook.

During his vaccination, AG Ford took the time to have a conversation with Dr. Jason Collins about the importance of getting vaccinated and to dispel some of the misinformation circulating related to the vaccine.

“I want to thank Carson-Tahoe Health for administering my second dose of the COVID- 19 vaccine and for allowing me to have an educational conversation with Dr. Jason Collins,” said AG Ford. “Stopping a pandemic requires everyone’s help and that also means doing your part in getting vaccinated. There are a lot of myths and misinformation circulating especially among minority communities, and I was thrilled to converse with Dr. Collins who is both a physician and an African American. Together, we hope to help Nevadans who may be skeptical of receiving this vaccine.”

“Over generations, minorities were at one point used as subjects in medical experiments, tests, even case studies,” continued AG Ford. “The lack of equity, fairness, and equality in the medical world is very prevalent, today. As part of a minority group even more vulnerable to this virus, this vaccine is all the more important. As Governor Sisolak noted in announcing his Equity and Fairness Initiative, communities of color are disproportionately likely to be affected by COVID-19, yet less likely to have received a vaccine.”

“Vaccines work hand in hand with your immune system to help your body fight the COVID-19 virus if you’re exposed. I’m encouraging all Nevadans to do their part by getting vaccinated. Help yourself and others and stay strong Nevada.”

More than enough snow at Tahoe for cross-country skiing…Nevada State Parks


Lake Tahoe –  Thanks to recent winter storms, Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, Spooner Lake has the snowpack needed to groom cross-country ski trails. The 5 kilometer system of meandering trails wind through dense forest, across an open meadow and along the banks of Spooner Lake.  The trail system is made possible by a partnership between Nevada State Parks and Nevada Nordic, a non-profit group based in the Tahoe Basin.

The scenic, intermediate trail includes varied flat and rolling terrain, which makes it great for both families and experienced skiers.

For updated trail conditions, visit nevadanordic.org.

When using the trails at Nevada State Parks please be mindful of trail etiquette:
— Do not walk on the trail in shoes or boots.

— Dogs should be on a leash of not more than 6 feet in length and off to the side of the groomed trails.

— Snowshoers are welcome but should stay to the far edge of the trail and be careful not to mar the center of the trail for skate skiing, or the tracks set for classic skiing.

All access to cross-country ski trails are open to the public at no additional charge. There is an entrance fee into the park of $10 per vehicle.

Governor Sisolak takes to the air waves over vaccine distribution…

Governor Steve Sisolak

Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak released a video message (at the bottom of this page) announcing a new Equity and Fairness Initiative aimed at ensuring that equity is a cornerstone of all vaccination efforts.

In the last month, the State has made incredible gains leveraging State resources to expand vaccination sites, get more boots on the ground with support of the Nevada National Guard and federal personnel, expand the vaccinator workforce, and clear a data backlog in Southern Nevada.

While substantial progress has been made to ensure doses are being administered, challenges still remain. One of the major challenges identified is equity and fairness in vaccine allocation.

According to vaccination data released by the Southern Nevada Health District, Clark County is facing a vaccine equity challenge, resulting in a disparity in who is receiving the vaccine that does not reflect the demographics of that region. Additionally, there are concerns over the Nevada COVID-19 Vaccination Playbook not being followed, resulting in an unfair allocation of vaccines, confusion among the public, and access to vaccines by ineligible groups or individuals.

“Equity and fairness requires an intentional effort to reach every community and not create a situation where those who have been disproportionately impacted by this virus are left behind – including the elderly and our frontline workers,” said Gov. Sisolak. “As we continue to fight for more doses from the federal government, it’s critical that the Nevada Vaccine Playbook is followed to support equitable vaccine distribution. While substantial progress has been made to ensure doses are being administered, challenges still remain — but there’s no problem that we cannot solve as a State when we work together.”

Under this initiative, the state will work with Clark County Emergency Management and Southern Nevada Health District to clarify prioritization lanes, support fair access to vaccines through site selection, and equitable allocation across communities. Updates and progress will be reported publicly to the COVID-19 Mitigation and Management Task Force.

If equity and fairness issues arise in other areas throughout the State, focus will be given to alleviate challenges there as well.

The Governor’s full remarks can be found in the video message here: https://youtu.be/kXeay89mzzg.

Local law enforcement crackdown scheduled for February 4 through February 13th

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is joining forces with other Nevada Law Enforcement Agencies from February 4th through February 13th to enforce impaired driving laws and keep impaired drivers off of Nevada roadways.

It doesn’t take much to be an impaired driver. Use of illicit drugs or misuse of prescription drugs can make driving a vehicle unsafe—just like driving after drinking alcohol. Nationwide, statistics show that on average about 44 percent of drivers involved in fatal crashes tested positive for drugs.

Not only is alcohol and illegal drug use a cause of impairment, legally prescribed medication use can lead to impaired driving. If you are using legally prescribed medication and driving you could be charged with driving under the influence.

Nevada Revised Statute 484c.110 makes it illegal to drive or be in actual physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of any controlled substance. This includes prescription medications.

If you do use prescribed medications, create social strategies to prevent having to be behind the wheel.

  • Use a designated driver, taxi, public transportation.
  • Have items delivered, many companies will deliver food and supplies.
  • Discuss the risks with your friends and family.

Any death caused by impaired driving is 100% preventable; make the right choice, drive safe, drive sober.

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office remains dedicated to bringing the number of fatalities on our roadways to zero through increasing public awareness about the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. More information about safe driving and the state’s Zero Fatalities goal is available online at www.ZeroFatalitiesNV.com.

The Nevada Department of Public Safety’s- Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) provides funding for law enforcement agencies to participate in Joining Forces to reduce traffic deaths and injuries on Nevada roadways. Visit www.zerofatalitiesnv.com for more information.
