CARSON CITY, NV- August 06, 2021

Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak issued the following statement after the State surpassed 6,000 deaths due to COVID-19.

“Today, we have lost more than 6,000 Nevadans to COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic in early 2020. This is another significant and heartbreaking milestone for our State. My heart aches alongside all of the Nevada families who are mourning the loss of a loved one. Kathy and I send our condolences to those who have lost a cherished family member or friend to this virus, and please know the State of Nevada will always keep their legacy and their memory in our hearts.

I want to encourage all Nevadans who have not yet done so to please consider getting the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. The vaccines are free, safe and incredibly effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization and death.”
