Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak is warning residents that more restrictions could be needed if people aren’t more careful about stopping the spread of Covid-19.

“Covid wasn’t supposed to last this long. We all feel Covid fatigue,” Sisolak said at a news conference Tuesday. “Unfortunately, this virus doesn’t get fatigued.”

The state’s daily case count has doubled in the past month, according to state health officials. The test positivity rate in Nevada is now 9.1%, the highest rate since early September and 82% higher than the goal set by the World Health Organization.

“We’re beginning – just beginning – to see an alarming trend in the number of cases and hospitalizations in Nevada,” he said.
