CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The rate of coronavirus infections is steadily rising in Nevada, but state officials have no plans to reimplement restrictions to curb the spread of the virus.
Gov. Steve Sisolak said Tuesday that the state's spike was in line with national and worldwide trends. He said he hopes not to reimplement restrictions on businesses and large public gatherings and implored residents not to succumb to "COVID fatigue."
The rate of infections has been increasing since Nevada eased restrictions on public gatherings Oct. 1. Because of the number of new cases, the White House Coronavirus Task Force has since re-designated the state as a "red zone."
