Today in a late notice press conference, Governor Sisolak announced that bars in certain Nevada counties must close as of 11:59 p.m. Friday, July 10, to help stem the spread of COVID-19 in Nevada. The State Department of Health and Human Services is currently confirming the criteria that would designate a county in Nevada as a hotspot. Tomorrow, the Governor will release that criteria and the names of the counties that will be required to close bars, per this directive.
The press release and directive can be found HERE once available.
