COVID Task Force Assessments

The Nevada COVID-19 Task Force has been established to support a new county-specific approach to the state’s emergency response. The Task Force will ensure statewide adoption. At a minimum, it will be made up of heads of key state agencies, private sector representatives, and local representatives. This task force will be charged with ensuring accountability for state-level efforts, coordinating essential activities between departments, and providing a sustainable model for receiving and sharing data and vetting proposals and recommendations.

This new approach will ensure the state, in coordination with each county, can assess all available data, evaluate key metrics, and make timely decisions based on the disease burden and transmission risk in each region throughout Nevada. Reviewing this critical data and metrics such as status of hospitalizations, disease investigation reports, and more will allow the State to better understand the capacity of each county to respond and then take targeted actions to help mitigate the spread. The goal of this targeted approach is to address identified risk areas and take action, and to avoid broad-based closures or limitations that could harm businesses who may not be the cause of spread.

In the case that there is not enough data or information needed to take a targeted approach in a county, or if a county is not collaborating with the State in a productive manner, the Task Force and/or the Governor maintain the right to take action and implement mitigation measures in accepted high risk settings.

To ensure the success of this approach, the task force shall perform the following duties:

  1. Meet on at least a weekly basis.
  2. Provide a current situation report on COVID-19 in Nevada, including weekly case numbers and county-level analysis.
  3. Provide an overview of the COVID-19 response effort in Nevada, including enforcement numbers from throughout the state and other findings.
  4. Assess county status per these guidelines and make decisions for actions to be taken over the next week.
  5. Collaborate with county representatives to determine best methods for reducing the community burden of COVID-19.
