LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Pools are at risk of being shut down in Nevada amid temperatures of more than 110 degrees in the Las Vegas valley as coronavirus infections continue to rise.
Gov. Steve Sisolak announced Thursday that bars would return to Phase 1 of the Nevada United: Roadmap to Recovery plan followed by an announcement that pools and gyms are also in his sights for a reversion.

"While not in the directive today, I want to assure all Nevadans and visitors that we are monitoring other areas where fellow states have taken action, like swimming pools and gyms," he said.
Sisolak strongly urged people at public pools to follow the state's directive to wear face coverings.
"I want to be crystal clear: unless you are actively walking into a pool, swimming in a pool, or walking out of a pool, you should have a face covering on at all times. It’s a simple as that," he said.
