Governor Sisolak Guidance: Directive 008 – Evictions 

Understanding Governor Sisolak’s Directive for the moratorium on evictions

UPDATED: March 30, 2020

This directive is intended to keep people in their homes at a time when we are attempting to flatten the curve by encouraging all Nevadans to stay at home. As much as possible, people should NOT be out on the streets. Additionally, this is also not the time to come down hard on small businesses who have been forced to shut down and have been hit hard by the economic fallout of this pandemic. In order to keep Nevadans safe and stop the spread, the following directives will be in place as long as Nevada is in a state of emergency:

The overarching goal here is to keep people at home, and any attempt to get around this Directive will be dealt with harshly.

This Directive is not meant to transfer financial hardship from one group of individuals to another, but rather to have a positive impact on countless Nevadans. This is to keep people in their homes and temporarily shield small businesses during an incredibly difficult time as we all work to protect the public health and safety of Nevada citizens.
