Nevada Governor: Campuses To Stay Closed Through School Year

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak announced Tuesday he's extending the closure of schools until the end of the school year and is not close to relaxing restrictions aimed to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

The Democratic governor and state experts said Tuesday that Nevada would need to see at least two weeks of consistent drops in the rate of COVID-19 cases and deaths before easing any business closures or stay-at-home rules.

The governor did not have a date for when that might occur and said it was also too soon to say if schools would remain closed for the new school year in the fall.
