Las Vegas, NV (AP) - Nevada's Covid-19 state of emergency ends Friday. Two weeks ago, Gov. Steve Sisolak announced plan to lift the state of emergency that was originally declared during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic.
In the statement from his office, Sisolak credited the declaration with giving the state “flexibility ... to respond to challenges as they arose.”
He put a May 20th end date to the statewide emergency he declared on March 12, 2020, and said officials want to “ensure there is no gap in services when the emergency ends.”
Most measures, including business restrictions and mask mandates, have already been lifted.
But the statement noted that some measures are still in place, including waiving some licensing requirements for health care workers and an allowance for some doctors, nurses, emergency medical technicians and medical students to care for COVID-19 patients.
“The State is working with the appropriate partners as the emergency order ends,” it said.
