Governor Sisolak Extends Nevada Business Shutdown: Issues Shelter-In-Place
Governor Steve Sisolak has extended a statewide business shutdown, ordering Nevadans to stay at home to slow the spread of the coronavirus through the end of April. The order applies to all public gatherings, events, and other non-essential activities planned through April 30—extending the shutdown by 14 days—as a necessary public health step.
Under the order, Nevadans are allowed to leave their homes for work, to exercise, receive health care and shop for food, so long as they practice safe social distancing. The “Stay at Home” issued directive allows Nevadans to go to gas stations, pharmacies, grocery stores, banks, takeout restaurants and other essential businesses, but does not permit residents to leave home for any other reason.
