Nevada Sets June Opening, Official Asks: 'What Happens If?'

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Gov. Steve Sisolak's June 1 date for fully reopening Nevada drew a rapid response to reopen legal brothels in one county — and a blunt question to the state's COVID-19 Task Force about cause and effect.

Lyon County Manager Jeff Page said Wednesday the state should set "trigger points" for what the governor will do if coronavirus cases and deaths spike again.

His comments came after Sisolak on Tuesday set the June 1 goal and Lyon County commissioners on Wednesday voted to lift business capacity and crowd-size restrictions May 1 — and let brothels reopen for the first time in 13 months.
