The coronavirus task force that Gov. Steve Sisolak appointed a year ago to handle the state’s pandemic response will stop meeting regularly after June 1. That’s the date the Democratic governor has set for lifting coronavirus mitigation restrictions except mask mandates statewide. Sisolak said Friday that Caleb Cage also will step down as COVID-19 response director and return to the Nevada System of Higher Education with a promotion to vice chancellor of workforce development and chief innovation officer. Sisolak said the pandemic isn’t over, but state response efforts will focus on mass vaccination of state residents.
