Additional state funding approved by Board of Examiners

  On April 8, Governor Sisolak reported the following: "The Interim Finance Committee met virtually on Tuesday and approved $6.25 million in state funding to help pay for battling the cost of COVID-19. This funding was approved by the Board of Examiners last week. This will help us leverage federal funding to purchase more PPE and other essential needs to battle COVID-19. The committee also approved releasing $2 million in settlement funds to United Ways to help Nevadans with rent assistance. From the beginning, I’ve been transparent about my goal: mitigate the spread." Read more.

CDC recommends face coverings

  In addition to the 6-foot social distancing best practice, CDC is advising the use of cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus. Many people may have the virus and not show symptoms which can result in the transmission to others.
