The Nevada Health Response Center, in coordination with the Local Empowerment Advisory Panel (LEAP), released industry-specific guidance for Phase 1 reopening, in alignment with the Nevada United: Roadmap to Recovery.

The guidance covers a wide-range of industries and was developed by the Local Empowerment Advisory Panel (LEAP) in conjunction with the Governor’s Office, public health officials and local health districts, business leaders, state agencies and state licensing and regulatory boards.


Yesterday, Gov. Steve Sisolak announced that Phase 1 reopening will begin on Saturday, May 9. During Phase 1, businesses may open, but have to follow the business and sector-specific guidance that the LEAP and the State drafted.

Businesses are also empowered to impose stricter social distancing requirements than the statewide standards, as they deem necessary or appropriate. And I encourage these businesses to communicate the standards appropriately to their customers.
