LAS VEGAS (AP) — COVID-19 emergency declarations for Nevada ended Friday. The public health agency for metro Las Vegas says will continue to provide virus surveillance and assistance with vaccinating and testing as the pandemic continues. Most of Nevada’s pandemic measures, including business restrictions and mask mandates, have already been lifted, but the Southern Nevada Health District said it was important to remind the public that the virus that causes COVID-19 continues to circulate. Gov. Steve Sisolak on Thursday signed a proclamation ending the emergency Friday, a planned action he announced two weeks ago. His administration is now focused on the state’s recovery.
