Governor Sisolak Focuses on Enforcement
On Monday July 27, 2020, Governor Sisolak gave a press conference to communicate the current state of COVID-19 in Nevada and to preview a targeted long-term containment strategy. The Governor will present this strategy on Monday August 3, 2020, but he indicated that it will focus on a county by county data-driven evaluation of each county’s containment success in order to increase the predictability of more or less restrictive policies for businesses and residents in each county.
The Governor stated that our COVID-19 new cases have increased, but that this was anticipated given the 4th of July holiday. He suggested that there were indicators to suggest that Nevada is improving its overall containment noting specifically a significant increase in mask wearing, testing, and compliance with health and safety rules. State data shows that we are beginning to flatten the curve in terms of new cases and hospitalizations.
