Today, the Mayor of Boulder City, Kiernan McManus put out a short address to the people and businesses of Boulder City. In this, he expresses his sincere appreciation for how the citizens and businesses of Boulder City have responded to this crisis, citing the volunteer efforts and willingness of residents to stay home and minimize contact.
He says, “We have been fortunate the devastation seen in other cities did not occur here in Boulder City. I am certain that this is due to the sacrifices our residents and business owners have made to keep us safer by staying home and limiting person to person contact.”
The Mayor also reminds everyone that we are still in a declared State of Emergency, and that while case numbers have been stable in Boulder City the last several days, that we are not past this yet. He reminds us that as we slowly begin the process of reopening that, “if we do not follow the advice of the health professionals…we may well see the spread of this disease re-emerge quickly”, and asks all residents in town to continue to practice safety and social distancing.
The State of Nevada has joined several other western states in taking a group approach to how the process of reopening will begin. According to word from the Review Journal, we will be hearing something from the Governor tomorrow, Thursday, April 30th. When we do – we’ll share it with you here!
