Today, Governor Sisolak joined Caleb Cage, Nevada COVID-19 Response Director and Julia Peek, Deputy Administrator of Community Health Services, to provide updates on Nevada’s ongoing COVID-19 response, testing and reporting during a teleconference with members of the media. He thanked everyone for ongoing support and well wishes while he recovers from COVID-19. Last Tuesday, the Governor held a press conference and asked all Nevadans to operate in a “Stay at Home 2.0” mentality to get things under control so our public health response infrastructure can catch up. The goal was that a behavior change would result in a downward trajectory at the end of this 14-day period. He closed the press conference by letting Nevadans know that if we don’t come together at this moment, he will be forced to take stronger action in 14 days. On today’s call, the Governor confirmed that one week into the 2 week “Stay at Home 2.0” period, Nevada is not currently experiencing a significant downward trend.
