Nevada: Gov. Sisolak warns of tougher restrictions if COVID-19 numbers don’t improve James DeHaven and Anjeanette Damon, Reno Gazette Journal · November 11, 2020 at 4:10 am Gov. Steve Sisolak has issued Nevadans a clear ultimatum: Shape up in two weeks, or expect steps toward another shutdown meant to halt a recent surge in coronavirus cases. Sisolak, speaking during a Tuesday press conference at the state Capitol, told reporters the state “must see a significant reversal of the current trends” in order to keep the state’s economy up and running. He also asked local governments to step up enforcement of the state’s existing COVID-containment measures and urged employers to allow telework whenever possible— all in order to “mimic” much stricter shelter-in-place orders issued at the start of the pandemic. The first-term Democrat has practically begged residents to follow Nevada’s mask-wearing and social distancing orders during recent virus-related press events. Now, he says he’s no longer asking.
