Nevada Governor Orders 30-Day Closure Of Non-Essential Business

From my state of Nevada…

The Hill reports:

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak (D) announced a statewide closure of all “nonessential” businesses for 30 days amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Speaking at a press conference in Carson City, Sisolak said the closure would apply to all casinos, restaurants, bars and other nonessential businesses. The move followed the statewide closing of K-12 schools that the governor ordered on Sunday.

“Every social contact increases your threat of exposure. The bigger the group, the higher the risk,” said Sisolak. 

Fifty-five coronavirus cases have been reported thus far in Nevada. One person has died in the state.
