Yesterday evening, Governor Sisolak held a press conference and asked Nevada residents to voluntarily stay home for two weeks. He did not make this a formal directive, and there are no true guidelines that his office put out. He asked that local governments step up their enforcement of previous dirrectives, that people refrain from meeting in groups whenever possible, and that employees telework if possible. The goal is to get the rising positivity rate down and not overwhelm hospitals.
Coverage of the press conference:
Governor Sisolak announced the appointment of J. Brin Gibson to the Gaming Control Board and designated him to serve as the new chair and executive director. Gibson will fill a vacancy left after Sandra Douglass Morgan resigned to pursue an exciting professional opportunity. The appointment is effective November 18. The press release is HERE.
