Daily Update- August 13, 2020 Nevada COVID-19 Update

Today, Governor Sisolak announced that Nevada’s COVID-19 death toll surpassed 1,000 people. His remarks from today: 

“Today, it is with great sadness that we must recognize that Nevada’s COVID death toll has reached 1,000.  The grief felt by the deaths of each of these Nevadans that has succumbed to this virus has been devastating to so many across our State, and the First Lady and I extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends of all those who have been lost. Myself and the entire administration will continue doing everything we can to fight against this virus with the goals of mitigating the spread and preventing more loss.  

These deaths are a sobering reminder that we must remain vigilant and do all that we can to slow the spread while we’re in the throes of this horrific pandemic. At this time, I implore all Nevadans to do your part. Wear a face covering, practice social distancing, and above all, take seriously our personal responsibility to help slow the spread and protect those around us.”
