NV Virus Outbreak Nevada

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has issued a directive ordering bars in Clark and Washoe counties to return to Phase 1 shutdown, starting at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, July 10.

The governor made the announcement at a news conference on Thursday. On Friday, Sisolak announced that the following counties would be required to close bars:

  • Clark County
  • Elko County
  • Humboldt County
  • Lander County
  • Lyon
  • Nye County
  • Washoe County

Counties were identified if they had "elevated disease transmission" if they met at least two of three criteria:

1. Average number of tests per day (per 100,000) < 150. The average number of cases resulted during the previous week in a county, divided by the number of people living in the county. This number is then multiplied by 100,000 to control for varying populations in counties.

2. Case rate (per 100,000) >100. The total number of cases diagnosed and reported over a 14-day period divided by the number of people living in the county. This number is then multiplied by 100,000 to control for varying populations in counties.

3. Case rate (per 100,000) >25 AND testing positivity >7.0%. The total number of positive polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests divided by the total number of PCR tests conducted. This number is then multiplied by 100 to get a percentage. Due to reporting delay (which may be different between positive and negative tests), there is a 7-day lag.

Bars that do not serve food can still provide curbside and delivery service, but may not allow patrons on the premises, Sisolak said. Restaurants with bars must close the bar areas, regardless if they have gaming machines installed.

Sisolak on Friday further emphasized that bars inside gaming establishments, such as casinos, must also close to customers. However, according to the directive, bar beverages may be served at tables outside of the bar area for onsite consumption. Customers must only be served via table services and may not order from the bar top area.

"We are monitoring other areas like pools and gyms," Sisolak said. He emphasized that face covering still need to be worn in these areas, except while actively swimming or in a high-intensity workout.

Sisolak also reminded Nevadans that masks are "not partisan." 

"It is costing lives to have people not mask," he said, adding that there should be 95% compliance for the face covering measure to be effective. 

Sisolak also highlighted findings from the Division of Industrial Relations and Nevada OSHA. The agencies followed up with 56 businesses that were previously noncompliant with health guidance, and found 50 that are now compliant.

As of Thursday, Nevada has had 24,904 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 571 deaths.

If you would have stopped with just that fact that your dad died you would have been believable. But to add that he was a very healthy manly man shows that your post is propaganda. So far not one healthy person has died from the Sars virus, which is what Covid really is. Only people with severe preexisting conditions have died from Sars just like what happens every flu season.

When you try to scare people with the number of a half a million people died around the world..that is out of 7 billion people. More then 500 million people die every month in the world from all causes. The mortality rate in America is .004 percent for people under the age of 70. That is a lower death rate then any flu season we have had in the last ten years..

More people have died from the shutdown, from having their lives destroyed and their freedom removed. This is not a game, this is the permanent end of freedom in Nevada. Only a brain dead idiot thinks that this Covid scam is going to end and we will all of a sudden have our freedoms returned to us.

We live in a democracy, if these restrictions continue up until the next gubernatorial election, there is no way the party in power will win reelection. This has happened before in American history and it quickly put an end to the progressive era leading to the conservative 1920s. In the 19th century poor pandemic responses also often led to political changes. This will no last forever democracy is always in motion and America is always evolving.

FactsnotBS

I wonder if anyone who writes Covid19 is a "fraud" virus, "fake news", “just politics” has had someone die from Covid19? My Dad died. He was one of those 'manly' men who didn't need to follow safety directives. He died in May. He didn't and we don't know where or how he caught Covid19. He started having troubles breathing, he had a fever. He went to the ER, they tested him, he had Covid19. 7 days after his test results he died while on a ventilator from complications due to Covid19. My dad was healthy. But he was an idiot when it came to staying safe during this pandemic. He touched something or breathed in someone's Covid-19 virus, who also wasn't staying safe, and he died. So really, f.u.c.k all of you who think this is a game, or politics, or trying to point to some bullshit in the bible or not in the bible about this pandemic. Read the facts about wearing masks (no, they are not perfect safeguards from catching Covid19, they help prevent large droplets of the virus from spreading when an infected person is coughing and sneezing in public), wash your hands, stay at your house (P.S. it's not my fault you hate your life, take this time to change it. Hate your house? Fix it.) Read the facts before spouting off. And why lie? If you have no true facts, then educate yourself and please, not through some fanatical website with dark theories. Because really everyone who is educated about Covid19 just rolls their eyes, knows you're a complete moron, and hopes that you don't live in their County, This isn't a game, this isn't political, this isn't a way to control people (really, if the Government could control people, they'd have everyone working, earning a wage that would benefit them by donating to their political campaigns). Over half a million people have died from Covid-19 this year. Not since the history of the World, U.S. history, the last 5 flu seasons - over half a million people have died in six and a half months.

FACEBOOK IS BLOCKING The Truth About Masks

Posted: 10 Jul 2020 08:30 AM PDT

From an OSHA Inspector:

I wanted to put this out there. I have worked in a clean room for 23 years and 10 years on Submarines before that. OSHA is the standard that you have to live by in these environments. So for the people that are going to say, listen to the experts, OSHA would be those experts on face masks. Please read the following with an open mind. Not going to change the mind of the hard core believers, but it would be nice for those people to not attack us that are not, as not caring. Not going to debate this, just putting it out there.

COPIED FROM AN OSHA CERTIFIED GENTLEMAN:

If you care, then share.

For all you mask wearers (especially those of you who think wearing it outside is NOT stupid 🤦🏼‍♀️). I know I’m about to burst your “google doctor degree” bubble, but here goes nothing.

So Masks?

I am OSHA 10&30 certified. I know some of you are too. I don’t really know WHY OSHA hasn’t come forward and stopped the nonsense BUT I want to cover 3 things

• N95 masks and masks with exhale ports

• surgical masks

• filter or cloth masks

Okay, so upon further inspection, OSHA says some masks are okay and not okay in certain situations.

If you’re working with fumes and aerosol chemicals and you give your employees the wrong masks and they get sick, you can be sued.

• N95 masks: are designed for CONTAMINATED environments. That means when you exhale through N95 the design is that you are exhaling into contamination. The exhale from N95 masks are vented to breath straight out without filtration. They don’t filter the air on the way out. They don’t need to.

Conclusion: if you’re in Target and the guy with Covid has a N95 mask, his covid breath is unfiltered being exhaled into Target (because it was designed for already contaminated environments, it’s not filtering your air on the way out).

• Surgical Mask: these masks were designed and approved for STERILE environments. The amount of particles and contaminants in the outside and indoor environments where people are CLOGGING these masks very, VERY quickly. The moisture from your breath combined with the clogged mask will render it “useless” IF you come in contact with Covid and your mask traps it, YOU become a walking virus dispenser. Everytime you put your mask on you are breathing the germs from EVERYWHERE you went. They should be changed or thrown out every “20-30 minutes in a non sterile environment.”

• Cloth masks: I can’t even believe I’m having to explain this, but here it goes. Today, three people pointed to their masks as they walked by me entering Lowe’s. They said “ya gotta wear your mask BRO” I said very clearly “those masks don’t work bro, in fact they MAKE you sicker” they “pshh’d” me. By now hopefully you all know CLOTH masks do not filter anything. You mean the American flag one my aunt made? Yes. The one with sunflowers that looks so cute? Yes. The bandanna, the cut up t-shirt, the scarf ALL of them offer NO FILTERING whatsoever. As you exhale, you are ridding your lungs of contaminants and carbon dioxide. Cloth masks trap this carbon dioxide the best. It actually risks your health, rather than protect it. The moisture caught in these masks can become mildew ridden over night. Dry coughing, enhanced allergies, sore throat are all symptoms of a micro-mold in your mask.

-Ultimate Answer:

*N95 blows the virus into the air from a contaminated person.

*The surgical mask is not designed for the outside world and will not filter the virus upon inhaling through it. It’s filtration works on the exhale, (Like a vacuum bag, it only works one way) but likely stops after 20 minutes, rendering it useless outside of a STERILE ENVIRONMENT (correct Becky, they don’t work in a bar, not even a little bit).

*Cloth masks are WORSE than none. It’s equivalent to using a chain link fence to stop mosquitos.

The CDC wants us to keep wearing masks. The masks don’t work. They’re being used to provide false comfort and push forward a specific agenda. For the love of God, research each mask’s designed use and purpose, I bet you will find NONE are used in the way of “viral defense.”

Just like EVERY Flu season kids, wash your hands. Sanitize your hands. Don’t touch stuff. Sanitize your phone. Don’t touch people. And keep your distance. Why? Because your breath stinks, your deodorant is failing, your shoes are old and stink, that shirts not clean, & I like my space. Trust me I can hear you from here. Lots of reasons to keep your distance and work on body hygiene. But trust me, the masks do not work.

*Occupational Safety & Hazard Association sited.

The top American organization for safety.

They regulate and educate asbestos workers, surgical rooms, you name it.

I know, facts suck. They throw a wrench into the perfectly (seeming) packaged pill you are willingly swallowing. Facts make you have to form your OWN OPINION, instead of regurgitating someone else’s, and I know how uncomfortable that makes a lot of you. If your mask gives you security, by all means wear it. Just know it is a false sense of security and you shouldn’t shame anyone into partaking in such “conspiracies.”

If select politicians stopped enforcing it, no one would continue this nonsense….

This post is 100% truth. In the bible social distancing and masks are not even motioned for a viral outbreak. There is a section on masks that deal with healthcare professional in a setting with sick people.

The hospitals all over the country are full of desperate people who are getting elective surgeries...not Covid patients...NOT COVID PATIENTS

Ginger

Sad we live amongst so many 'Brain Dead' citizens in Clark County. The virus and pandemic has no party affiliation, and is not political. For all you Macho Men sitting at home on your computers chirping stupidity, here is a sad fact for you. Florida's Er's reached capacity overnight. When all you wonders of mankind get sick, remember that and don't burden the ER staff with your illness. Be a man and just fight it or join the others in heaven. No one but your immediate family will miss you. Masks save lives. Don't think so, think again....

Nevermore

It's the "Brain Dead" citizens of this state that voted Sisolak into power. Of which I shall count you as one. People are losing their jobs and homes. Enjoy your feelings of superiority.

Ginger

I did not vote for Sisolak, but since you appear to be a self appointed political genius and health expert, then explain this fact away....anyone wanting to fly in to NY, NJ, and Connecticut from Nevada must self quarantine for 14 days. So I guess now in your little mind, the 3 governors and health experts of those states are idiots too ?? I truly feel sorry for people like you, because the world is just passing you by, and you don't even realize it.

Nevermore

Cuomo murdered thousands of elderly people by sending people sick with the Chinese virus into nursing homes. By your theory if they had just worn masks they all would have lived. Keep drinking the Kool-Aid. He murdered Mothers and Fathers. Health experts! I guess you must consider Fauci to be one. Typical liberal.

ocean

Ginger this virus is purely political as a public health expert the pollicization of public health is what everyone has feared. But the real fear of the weaponization of public health which has finally happened. If you want to understand what a fraud this whole covid thing is, the bible of public health is The American Public Health Association Control of Communicable Diseases manual. Page 539 under SARS MERS and other coronavirus infections. These protocols are the carved in stone rules that are supposed to be followed for any Coronavirus outbreak. Get this manual on line at Amazon or any other book seller. Every public health professional has been educated with this manual. These are the rules. FYI Covid 19 is really the 2006 Chinese bioweapon SARS that was released in Toronto Canada in 2006.

The PCR testing that is being done is all contaminated by non sterile people who provide the test one after another without sterilizing themselves between tests. This means that if the first person in line has Covid that person is shedding virus al over the person applying the test. Everyone else behind this person is going to have a contaminated test. Most will be false positives. What is happening in the hospitals is so many people had to put off need surgery for three month that these people are packing the hospitals , its not Covid patients . Also hospitals are testing each Covid patient five or six times and telling CDC that they have five or six case of Covid. No one is checking the hospitals as they make up for all the money they lost over the last three months No one is confirming the number of Covid patients vs the number of positive tests.

Voz de Razon

Sisolak is in no hurry to let others get their paychecks back because his fat taxpayer funded checks never got shut down.

There needs to be a law that if a governor ever tries this again, their check is the first to freeze.

Mediumjeep

He’s sitting on millions,he porked from some cheesy deal from the airport,his property was so valuable if it could be 25 stories tall ,but potential airplanes could hit anything that high ! Big payday!

jondough

sisolakisascumbag is SPOT ON. The Do Nothing Libtards create a false narrative to try to scare everybody into thinking that if they test positive for the chinese virus, on the way home they better drop by the mortuary and make their funeral arrangements. Then they want us to believe that Quid Pro Quo Joe would have all the answers, like he and his do nothing boss, who's name he couldn't remember did during the H1-N1 outbreak, (or according to Biden, the N1-H1 outbreak), which was nothing. This all makes about as much sense to anyone with half a brain as when Sisolak would not let people go to the drive in with the same people they were isolating with at home, yet the look at rioters are a vibrant part of society and that the covid knows to stay I will agree with the Libtards on one thing....That they can depend on liberals to drink all the Kool-Aid they are selling. Fortunately not everyone is that dumb, take Carolyn Goodman for example, look at all the people who DID NOT sign for the Recall (0, that's Zero signatures), even after she voiced her disdain for Sisolak's effort to ruin our state, referring to it as "insanity". It is a shame that neither She nor Oscar are governor. Liberals would not be able to deal with either of their honest, no back down opinions anymore than they can Trump's.

Do you really believe this is about a invisible virus that hardly anyone dies from? Still? On Wednesday the Democrats conducted a state wide poll on who people are going to vote for both in the Nevada congressional election and for President. The results where mostly for Republicans. This is why our tyrant has shut down the bars and soon the gyms and pools..to stop people from getting toghther and engaging in causal conversations about politics. That is what the masks are for as well so we can not talk to each other. The Democrats are destroying the people and now the chidren of Las Vegas for an election Just to win an election

qwerty123

In the modern world, closing physical locations does nothing to stop people to talking to one another. The longer the shut down goes on, the lower and lower the governor's approval rating goes. He probably won't win re-election, but I don't think he cares when it comes to saving human lives. Also all viruses are invisible to the human eye, if they were larger they would not fit into cells, which the whole goal of a virus.

ocean

Saving lives? how many people have committed suicide because the shut down has destroyed their lives? 500? 1,000? How many people have died because they could not get the necessary medical care because the hospitals where shut down to everyone except Covid patients? How many people are dying from drug or alcohol abuse because they have been out of work for four months now?

Since when does any Democrat care about the lives of the small business owners? How about the school children that are going to be destroyed because they are not going to get any schooling?

qwerty123

I would argue that both sides about human lives, they simply put their priorities in different places. The loyalty of the opposition be it left or right is a foundational American principle.

In the aggregate I do believe these measures have saved lives, though I do recognize this has been hard on everyone and I would love to go back to my life and see something outside my home.

The small business owner is the Yeoman farmer of today, both parties greatly covet the support of small business owners and claim to be acting in their interest, yet both fall short. Also hospitals are open to people who need medical care even if it is not Covid: please do not spread misinformation that hospitals are closed that could hurt even more people.

Lastly on education, this next school year is going to be tough, there will be steep learning curve adjusting to hybrid learning. Though there is no replacement for the classroom experience students can still cover most educational standards digitally, some might actually work better in this environment.

qwerty123

*both sides care about human lives. sorry about the typo

False!

SISOLAK IS A CORRUPT TYRANT DETERMINED TO DECIMATE NEVADAS ECONOMY. HES RUNNING OUT COVID UNTIL NOVEMBER SO HE CAN CLOSE THE POLLS AND CHEAT VIA VOTER FRAUD. HES ONE OF THE MOST CORRUPT GOVERNORS IN THE US, WORKING TO END AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE AND RUIN NEVADA. WHAT NEXT FORCED VACCINATION?

guest13078

Sisolak is a lousy governor. The virus is just a flu. Deaths are very low. The numbers are padded for fed monies at our expense. Hes the former chairman of the clark county commissioners. He knows vegas and business in the state more than anyone. So why is he putting nv into financial ruin? Because hes following the other demorats to destroy our economy cause they hate trump. He wants a state tax. He wants to raise taxes. Typical demorat slimebag. There is no overload at hospital. So from now on whatever disease pops up we shut the country down ! Demorats blow

You don't like, bite me!

No, all of the people who refuse masks are lousy Blame them for what's happening right now. This should not be and is not political. Our residents health and safety come first. Plain and simple.

sisolakisascumbag

Okay Dumbo...you would have loved Hitler.

If masks prevent getting the virus, why didn't they just give them to the prisoners instead of releasing them?? This is nothing but democrats playing politics with people's lives. But keep drinking the Kool-Aid. You're a hoot.

ocean

Masks do nothing to prevent the spread of a virus. When you breathe out the air escapes our the sides and the top of your mask. Mask are designed for those who are operating on someone to prevent blood splatter getting into their faces. The Democrats are using masks to end the freedom of speech. so no one can talk about the slimball pervert senile Joe Biden that is their chose for president. The fascists are closing all places where people congregate so no one can talk about Joe Biden..that is all this is about.

sisolakisascumbag

Exactamundo!

The Chinese virus was created in a lab. It was not a natural disaster. The Chinese government meant to do this. They have no empathy for anybody. Least of all their own people. So how long will we be kept in lock down? When this virus ends, they'll just come up with a new one. Sisolak is just doing what he's told. What he is doing is wrong. Do the means really justify the end.

If China made a virus they would release one much deadlier.

He was endorsed by Obama who hates America. He wants us broke and dead. Obozo works for S oros. Race riots are his specialty and bankrupting countries. Sisolak is corrupt filthy trash.

qwerty123

There are no winners in this. Covid-19 is a natural disaster, all we can do is mitigate its damage. The governor has chose to safe human lives over the economy. In his shoes I would probably do the same thing, no matter what it did to my re-election chances.

sisolakisascumbag

"natural disaster" what planet are you on? China Virus was produced and released...on purpose after China lost. Nancy Pelosi said,"Come to Chinatown, dont be afraid of the virus" She knew.

qwerty123

I am on earth, you are welcome to join me if you wish. If China was to crate a virus they would make one much more deadly. Also the city of San Francisco put in much stricter restrictions than Las Vegas and you are discouraged from visiting tourist attractions like Chinatown where people congregate during this pandemic.

This mush mouth tyrant need to go. Please stop testing people, he is just using the numbers against us. You can't test positive if you don't test.

You don't like, bite me!

No, say thanks to all of the idiots and businesses who refuse to wear a mask. You were all given a chance to do what's right. Now people like yourself are the only ones to blame. Keep it up, and the Strip will shut back down. Maybe it should, so all you out of state idiots can go back to to where you came from. Viva la covid.
