The COVID-19 state of emergency is coming to an end in Nevada

Governor Steve Sisolak announced Friday that he intends to end the state of emergency in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic on May 20.

The state of emergency was declared in March 2020 for Nevada and has allowed the state to respond to challenges from the coronavirus pandemic.

“The Covid-19 pandemic tried and tested our state at all levels,” Sisolak said in a press release. “By working together across all levels of government and in every corner of the state, we prevented our health care system from being overwhelmed and continued to provide services to needy Nevadans.

“I’m so grateful to all the Nevadans who have worked through these trying times in Silver State’s service.”

Between now and May 20, the state will continue to work with partners to ensure there is no gap in services when the emergency ceases.
