LAS VEGAS (KTNV)  — The Springs Preserve announced it will be closing until further notice this week due to COVID-19 cases rising in Southern Nevada.

Representatives at the Preserve say the cultural institution will close to members and the public starting Friday in response to Gov. Steve Sisolak’s request that Nevadans stay at home to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus within the community,

“While we only recently reopened our outdoor spaces to the public, we believe it is in the best interests of the health and safety of everyone in the community to follow the governor’s request and temporarily cease operations until further notice,” said Springs Preserve Manager Bruno Bowles.

Bowles also said the Preserve hopes to reopen outdoor attractions, museums, exhibits and other indoor attractions as soon as conditions allow.
