Gov. Sisolak: Nevadans' Behavior Will Help Determine Reopening Timeline

Written by KOLO News Staff


Gov. Steve Sisolak said April 21 that Nevadans will help determine the timeline when it comes to re-opening the state.

The governor was joined by experts with the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health, the Nevada Department of Education, the Nevada Hospital Association and the Nevada National Guard in Carson City.


The governor said while COVID-19 case numbers are down, we are not out of the woods, and stressed continued social distancing measures.


He said when social distancing is loosened too soon, and without a layered approach, resurgence of the virus is imminent.


“We cannot flip a light switch and turn our lives or our economy back on too quickly.”


The governor laid out the framework for re-opening the state in phases. He said right now we are in Phase Zero.


The criteria for reopening the state includes in part the following:


Consistent and sustainable downward trajectory of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations over a 14-day period measured by a decrease in the trend of COVID-19 hospitalizations and a decline in the percentage of people testing positive.


Also, the ability for healthcare systems to maintain hospital capacity without crisis standards of care.
