RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Gov. Steve Sisolak announced Monday, June 29, 2020 that Nevada will remain in Phase 2 through the end of July as part of the Nevada United Roadmap to Recovery.

The emergency directive is due to the rising trend of COVID-19 infections, the time needed for expanded contact tracing, and to see if the Governor’s directive on wearing face masks has an impact.

The directive also provides that DMV documents set to expire between March 12th and July 15th will be valid through September 13, 2020.

“Flexibility is one of the core principles in our Roadmap to Recovery, precisely to account for the situation we are in now. As I’ve said repeatedly, the virus – and our personal actions to help mitigate its spread- drives the timeline,” said Gov. Steve Sisolak in a statement provided to KOLO 8 News Now. “As a state, we were able to begin reopening because Nevadans were staying home as much as possible, washing hands frequently and maintaining six feet of social distancing. Now, all Nevadans must wear face coverings to help slow the spread as well. We can only stay open if we stay safe.”
