The governor has been asking Nevadans to “Stay Home for Nevada” since March 17 and has taken multiple steps since declaring a state of emergency on March 12 to protect Nevadans and encourage them to stay home and help flatten the curve. This directive reinforces the Governor’s earlier advisory for Nevadans to stay home and will go into effect at midnight on April 1, 2020.
“Today’s ‘Stay at Home’ directive strengthens the imperative that Nevadans must not leave their homes for nonessential activities in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19," said Governor Sisolak. “This directive builds on previous directives around school closures, social distancing, closure of non-essential businesses, and bans on public gatherings of 10 or more people by requiring you stay at home unless leaving is absolutely necessary."
Essential employees should continue their work activities, making sure to take proper precautions, like frequent handwashing, staying home if they are sick and abiding by aggressive social distancing protocols.
The directive also extends closure of non-essential businesses, gaming and schools through April 30, 2020. This change in time mirrors the latest guidance from the federal government.
