This afternoon Governor Sisolak announced his plans and a date for Phase 1 of reopening Nevada.

In the Nevada United Roadmap to Recovery released on April 30th, the Governor outlined the statewide criteria that must be met before moving into Phase 1, including a consistent and sustainable downward trajectory of COVID-19 cases and decrease in hospitalizations over a 14-day period; ability to maintain hospital capacity without crisis standards of care; expanded ability to administer tests and sufficient laboratory testing capacity; sufficient capacity to conduct contact tracing; and sustained ability to protect vulnerable populations.

Governor Sisolak noted that, as a state, we have met these criteria. Therefore, Phase 1 will begin Saturday, May 9, 2020.

Among the businesses that can reopen in Phase 1, with certain restrictions, include restaurants, hair salons/nail salons/barbers, and retail establishments. Businesses that will remain closed during Phase 1 include gyms/fitness centers, bars and nightclubs, movie theaters/live entertainment venues, etc.
