Yesterday the Governor took to the airwaves in a move that surprised no one given our surging COVID-19 cases, and extended the ‘Pause’ that had been put into effect until January 15, 2021. So…everything remains status quo for the most part.
He did announce that the statewide moratorium on evictions for residential renters will extend until March 31, 2021. That’s a relief of course for renters, but may also continue to strain the financial commitments for landlords.
As a refresher, the graphic above gives you a quick look at the guidelines that remain in place.
“With the extension of this pause, the evictions moratorium, the cooperation of Nevadans and a vaccine on the horizon, I am hopeful we can continue to stand together in this fight against the virus,” the Governor said. “We are fighting the virus, we cannot fight one another.”
Also as of today, will begin the roll out of the vaccine for the coronavirus, which will be given first to our health care workers and first responders. Let us hope that this process goes smoothly and quickly, and that this is the solution we have been waiting for to get control of the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Cases are on the rise significantly in the state and also within Boulder City, with a count as of this morning showing a total of 470 confirmed cases within town. Overall in Clark County, the numbers are surging as well.
Let’s please all be cautious, wear our masks and be sensible, patronizing our local businesses and restaurants as much as we can, while doing what is needed for each to protect themselves. Also, remember our elderly folks here in town, give them a call and check in on them periodically, and share a little cheer. Stay safe and know that better times lie ahead.
