            RE: Emergency Regulation Concerning COVID-19 Pandemic                                 

            Dear Governor Sisolak:

            The continued operation of non-essential businesses is impairing the State's ability to prevent the further transmission of COVID-19 and lives are at stake. The Department of Public Safety, Division of Emergency Management has determined that an immediate need exists for an emergency regulation defining essential and non-essential businesses, as well as, parameters for essential businesses to conduct business in this State under your March 12, 2020, Declaration of Emergency and related directives.

            Through the enclosed emergency regulation, businesses, as well as, state and local governments, will have the guidance to determine which businesses are essential and which are non-essential.  Further, essential businesses will have clear direction on the expectations for their ability to continue providing goods and services to our communities during the existence of the COVID-19 pandemic.

            This emergency regulation is necessary and your immediate endorsement is requested.

            Justin Luna
