Carson City, NV - March 13, 2020
Yesterday, as part of issuing a declaration of emergency in the State of Nevada, the Governor activated the State Emergency Operations Center and the Nevada Health Response Team. To support that effort, the Nevada Governor’s Office, in close coordination with the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), released a new “Nevada Health Response” website to provide up-to-date information and guidance pertaining to COVID-19.
“The new Nevada Health Response website provides a central, state-wide hub for individuals, businesses, and organizations looking for the most recent guidance and resources to make informed decisions surrounding the rapidly developing COVID-19 situation in Nevada,” said Governor Steve Sisolak. “It is absolutely critical that Nevadans and visitors are able to quickly and easily access the most accurate and up-to-date information possible in our State so they can take precautionary measures.”
The Nevada Health Response website is the product of extensive, around-the-clock collaboration between DHHS, the Governor’s Office, and local health partners over the past two weeks. This site provides access to preventative guidance as recommended by the federal Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and state and local health experts. It also provides Nevada-specific information and resources for organizations as well as individuals and groups living in and traveling to Nevada. Additionally, the site contains comprehensive frequently asked questions and answers to questions about COVID-19, on-going updates on the State of Nevada’s response and testing results, and centralizes press releases from local and State agencies, hospitals, and related organizations within the State.
