Nevada Governor Orders Indoor Mask Mandate, Limits Private Gatherings Ahead Of Thanksgiving

http://dailycaller.com/

Democratic Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak on Sunday strengthened the state’s mask mandate and limited attendees in private gatherings ahead of Thanksgiving.

Residents must wear face coverings whether gathering indoors or outside if any member that’s not in their household is present, according to a press release from the governor’s office. Private gatherings are limited to 10 people from a maximum of two separate households and public events will be capped at 50 people or 25% capacity, whichever is less, the order, which will last a total of three weeks, read.

“As your Governor, I am confident that I did all I could to avoid further restrictions and keep us on the path forward, but now I must act,” Sisolak said in the release. “In this defining moment, I implore Nevadans to tap into their independent spirit and consider their own personal responsibility.”

Restaurants, gyms, bars, arcades, casinos and other service industries will be limited to 25% capacity, but retail stores will be allowed to admit 50% of their businesses space, the release read. The measures take effect on Wednesday, according to the governor.

Sisolak said his state’s cases are “at wildfire levels” and he indicated Nevada’s positivity rate is greater than 16% in a Sunday tweet thread.

“Our case rate growth is at wildfire levels – even outpacing neighboring states, such as Arizona,” the Democrat wrote. “All available models indicate that Nevada is in a ‘red zone’ and our health experts anticipate continued case growth based on current trends.”

“As of today, 13 of 17 of our counties are flagged for elevated risk of transmission,” he continued. “In the beginning of October, only 2 counties were flagged. Our statewide positivity rate is at a record16.5 [sic] percent, and as I mentioned, we’ve surpassed 2,000 deaths.”

  1. And no Sisolak, cases are not at an all time high, false positive test results are and this is flu season. Stop using a cold virus as a way to further your communist agenda. Attention people, you go in and get tested for cv19, it will almost always come back positive, you will get over it but the test results will be used to bolster this asinine covid mania. Use your brain, if you don’t feel well stay home and take care of yourself. Fluids, vit c,d and zinc and rest. Since when are we not smart enough to know how to take care of ourselves. At what point in time did our ability to make decisions about out health transfer to a politician?

  2. What a joke, I don’t take fake “mandates” from a criminal. Sisolak and Cegavske and a few others in this state are neck deep in voter and ballot fraud and that clown still thinks he has the right to tell me what to do? He makes my skin crawl.
