Nevada officials say they are developing plans to lower the possibility of contracting the coronavirus in six, high-risk counties that include the cities of Las Vegas and Reno. The action plans in the works for Clark, Washoe, Elko, Humboldt, Lander and Nye counties are part of Gov. Steve Sisolak’s new approach that shifts away from broad rules to control the coronavirus to a more tailored reaction based on county-specific data. It’s unclear what those new plans will call for or when they will take effect. County officials and members of the task force were still reviewing the plans Friday and will meet Thursday to finalize them.
