Nevada Asked To Stay Home Until May 15; Golf, Tennis Resume

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak is extending his directive asking people to stay at home to limit the spread of coronavirus until May 15, but he will ease restrictions on other outdoor activities and some businesses starting Friday.

Sisolak's office said Wednesday night that he would allow starting May 1 retail businesses and marijuana dispensaries to offer curbside pickup, as restaurants have been doing.

He will also allow drive-in church services and the reopening of golf courses, pickleball and tennis courts starting Friday, as long they can do so safely and abide by social distancing guidelines.
