Out of an abundance of caution, Gov. Sisolak cancels planned press conference

CARSON CITY, NV - May 26, 2020

Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak announced he will cancel his in-person press conference planned for Tuesday, May 26 at 5:30 p.m.

The Governor still plans to provide an update to Nevadans on Tuesday evening, which will be delivered in a prerecorded video filmed from the Governor’s Mansion.

Late last week Gov. Sisolak had visited a work place where an employee – who was not in the building at the time – has since reported testing positive for COVID-19. The Governor’s Office learned of the positive test result on Tuesday.

Upon learning of the exposure, the Governor’s Office took immediate and responsible actions to limit the Governor’s exposure. Out of an abundance of caution, the Governor is cancelling his in-person press conference, pending COVID-19 test results.

The Governor is scheduled to take a COVID-19 test on Wednesday morning and will inform Nevadans of the results when they come in. At no point in the 5 days since the potential exposure has the Governor exhibited any symptoms.
