Preparedness and prevention are important buzzwords in this time of coronavirus and Nevada's Governor Sisolak continues to take a series of pro-active moves to help the state's residents stay safe.
On Thursday March 12th the governor declared a state of emergency for the state of Nevada, allowing access to the tools and flexibility needed to help address, contain and mitigate the effects of the virus. He activated the State of Emergency Operations Center, created the Nevada Health Response Team and unveiled a centralized website that will provide up-to-date information and guidance around the virus.
Although information is changing daily and in some cases several times per day the state and county health departments report 11 cases at time of publishing and are working to make sure that everyone who should be tested for the virus has access to the test.
