Carson City

FREE COMMUNITY EVENTS

CELEBRATING QUALITY OF LIFE IN CARSON CITY

(Carson City, NV) – November 2021 commemorates the 25th anniversary of the Quality-of-Life Initiative (QOL), a voter approved sales tax dedicated to parks, trails, open space, and the Boys and Girls Club in Carson City. Carson City Parks, Recreation and Open Space invites the community to celebrate with a fun variety of free activities for all ages and abilities.

QOL generated more than $55 million in revenue since its inception and leveraged nearly $12 million in grants. It preserved thousands of acres of open space and constructed miles of public trails. QOL funded important projects such as the Robert “Bob” Crowell Multipurpose Athletic Center; renovated the Bob Boldrick Theater and the Carson City Rifle and Pistol Range; and made improvements to Fuji, Mills, Centennial, and many other parks in Carson City. The capital city has more parks per capita than the national average, consisting of over 8,000-acres of parks, trails, and open space.

Anti-Covid-19 booster shots are on the way…

Boosters recommended for all three Covid-19 vaccines for qualified groups

State health officials have announced approval and guidance for Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 booster vaccinations, in addition to the previously announced booster approval for the Pfizer vaccine. These vaccines are now also authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Under these recommendations the following groups qualify for booster doses of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccine at least six months after their second shot:

* People 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster.
* People ages 50 to 64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster.
* People ages 18 to 49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster.
* People ages 18 to 64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of an occupational or institutional setting that puts them at higher risk may receive a booster (this includes health care workers and teachers, for example).
* A booster dose for Johnson & Johnson is recommended for everyone who received the vaccine, at least two months after the first dose.
* National and state health agencies have also authorized “mixing and matching” of the three vaccine brands for boosters, meaning a person may get a booster dose of a different vaccine than they originally received.

Check your local pharmacies to learn when the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be available in the Carson City area.

Looking for a new State Senator

Nevada State Capitol

Applications for Senate District 16 to be accepted from October 22-28, 2021

(Carson City, NV) – The Carson City Board of Supervisors and the Washoe County Board of County Commissioners will appoint a resident of Senate District 16 to fill the Senate seat vacated by the resignation of Senator Ben Kieckhefer earlier this month.

As required by state law, an appointee to the vacant Senate seat must: (1) be a qualified elector; (2) currently reside in the Senate District and have lived there as of September 29, 2021; (3) have been an actual, as opposed to constructive, citizen resident of Nevada for 1 year preceding the date of appointment; (4) be a registered member of the same political party as the outgoing Senator (Republican); (5) be at least 21 years of age at the time of appointment; and (6) meet all other qualifications for the office as required by the Nevada Constitution and state law. The application period for consideration opens at 9:00 a.m. on October 22, 2021 and closes at 12:00 p.m. on October 28, 2021. An application can be found at the link here. Applications will not be accepted outside of the application period.

Applications can be emailed to SD16application@washoecounty.gov or delivered in person during regular business hours to the Washoe County Administrative Complex, County Manager’s Office, 1001 East 9th Street, Reno.

Because Senate District 16 spans two counties, both the Carson City Board of Supervisors and the Washoe County Board of County Commissioners must decide on a single appointment. Carson City Supervisors will interview applicants and select a single candidate to nominate at its meeting on November 4, 2021 and the Washoe County Commissioners will meet on November 9, 2021 to do the same. The two county boards will meet jointly on November 10, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. to make the final appointment to fill the vacancy.

This process must be conducted immediately because the Nevada Legislature is expected to convene a Special Session this year to determine redistricting based on the results of the 2020 U.S. Census.

Any person who is interested in applying can check his or her district by entering a home address on the Nevada Legislature’s “Who’s My Legislator” website.

It’s out there…ready for target practice…

Here comes Winter!!

Here it comes!

As winter weather arrives in northern Nevada, the Nevada Department of Transportation and Nevada Department of Public Safety, Highway Patrol Division (NHP) are providing winter driving reminders to help motorists drive more safely.

Statewide, more than 900 crashes occurred in inclement weather last winter between Oct. 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021. Many of the crashes were due to unsafe driving in snow, ice and other wet conditions, such as driving too fast for conditions, following too closely, or failing to maintain a lane and overcorrecting.

In winter weather, motorists are reminded to drive slowly for conditions and leave space between their vehicle and others. Wearing a seat belt and focusing on the road are other important driving tips for any type of weather.

“We see too many fatalities caused by speed and distracted driving, particularly in winter weather,” Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Charles Caster said. “Always slow down in winter weather and always focus on the road.”

“We are dedicated to keeping Nevada highways safe for everyone traveling this winter,” NDOT Director Kristina Swallow explained. “As we work to keep the highways clear, we ask motorists to give extra travel time and slow down in winter weather. Taking it slow in ice and snow will help keep everyone safe.”

Updated state road conditions, including winter road closures and incidents, are available by dialing “511” or logging on to nvroads.com before driving. Drivers can also view live traffic cameras and sign up for free traffic alerts for their state road commute. Winter driving safety tips are available at dot.nv.gov/winter

Moderna and Johnson & Johnson Vaccines coming to a pharmacy near you…

CDC advisory panel recommends COVID-19 booster shots for Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advisory panel has recommended booster doses of Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines for persons who have already completed their vaccination series.

A booster is a vaccine dose that may be given to someone whose immune response from the primary vaccine series has waned over time.  

The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are currently authorized for use to prevent COVID-19 for persons 18 years of age and older. The only approved booster authorized for use for some groups is for Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, known as Comirnaty. 

The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) concluded its two days of meetings today. The ACIP recommended the use of booster doses for Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine for some persons 18 and older and booster doses of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine for persons 18 years and older.

The committee voted unanimously to recommend the use of boosters six months after a Moderna primary vaccination series and two months after a J and J vaccination series for eligible populations as outlined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Emergency Use Authorization.

The guidance will allow Moderna’s booster dose to be given six months after completing the original series for those 65 years and older and some groups of persons 18 years and older with certain health conditions and occupations, and as soon as two months for all persons 18 years and older who have received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.  

The committee also considered heterologous doses or a “mix and match” approach to booster doses. This would mean people eligible to receive the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson booster dose could use any COVID-19 vaccine as their booster dose. This would allow people to get a booster dose at any location that provides COVID-19 vaccines.

The committee’s final vote did not formally endorse the mix and match approach.

  • The CDC still needs to issue official recommendations and update their clinical considerations after review of the committee’s recommendations.
  • This topic will be reviewed more closely in the Western States Scientific Safety Review Group as well.

The Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup, including Oregon, Washington, California and Nevada, will assess the recommendations next. The group meets later today, and it should make its recommendation in one to two days. OHA would then issue guidance regarding the administration of booster shots in Oregon. 

At that point, eligible persons could seek booster shots through their health care provider or local pharmacy.  

“Nevadans can have confidence in the rigorous scientific review undertaken by the panels of scientists, medical experts and health officials to assess the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines,” said Dr. Paul Cieslak, Medical Director, Communicable Diseases and Immunizations. “Following this authorization, it may still take a little time for Nevadans eligible to get a Moderna or Johnson & Johnson booster to schedule their shots. Those who become eligible will get one, and we appreciate everyone’s patience. The good news is, all vaccines continue to protect vaccinated Oregonians from COVID-19.”

Eligible residents in long-term care facilities, including seniors, should receive their boosters through vaccination plans developed by their homes and pharmacies. State officials are also planning ways to reach home-bound seniors, people with disabilities and other vulnerable populations. 

Vaccines will continue being made available to Oregonians through their health care provider or local pharmacy. OHA has enrolled hundreds of vaccine providers in the state, and these sites are already vaccinating adults. We anticipate these sites will provide widespread access to booster doses so eligible persons who previously received the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines as well as those not yet vaccinated.

Those most at risk, however, remain persons who have not yet received a primary series of COVID-19 vaccines.  Doctors strongly encourage everyone eligible to take advantage of this preventive measure.”
