Full Re-Openings June 1 Concern Washoe County Health Officer
RENO, Nev. (AP) — Washoe County's health district officer fears the governor's new push to fully reopen businesses statewide by June 1 will accelerate a recent rise in COVID-19 cases.
But he says he understands the need to balance safety with economic factors. Several rural counties planned to present mitigation plans to a state task force Thursday to guide re-openings beginning next month.
Clark County Commission Chairwoman Marilyn Kirkpatrick says they can meet the June 1 goal to fully reopen in Las Vegas.
But Washoe County officials postponed plans to present their blueprint to the task force Thursday while commissioners and health experts work out differences.
