Daily Update- November 11, 2020: Stay at Home 2.0, GCB Appointment

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.
