Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak (D) ordered residents to stay at home on Wednesday as he extended a statewide closure of schools and nonessential private businesses until the end of April.
A directive issued by the governor orders residents to remain at home unless performing essential tasks such as buying groceries or working at a necessary business, while outdoor recreational activities, such as walking, are also allowed. The directive reportedly does not come with any penalties for disobeying.
Steve Sisolak tweeted
“Today I formally issued a Stay at Home order & extended all other directives under the State Emergency Declaration, incl. the school, nonessential business & gaming closures.
