LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Governor Sisolak announced that the emergency directives expiring on July 31 will be extended.
Directives that will be extended include: limiting business occupancy to 50 percent and limiting gatherings to a maximum of 50 people.
Bars, pubs and taverns in specified Nevada counties with a high risk of transmission will remain closed, the governor's office said.
The state of Nevada will move to a long term mitigation process. The plan will use criteria based on long term trends to reduce fluctuation between counties to see who is getting progressively worse.
An advisory group made up of public health, hospital, business enforcement and local government officials will review the data, recommending further enforcement initiatives.
Information regarding Governor Sisolak's long-term strategy will be released in the coming days.
Local government agencies will continue to have the power to enforce the emergency directives.
