FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 10, 2020
Carson City, NV — Yesterday evening, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak announced bars, pubs, taverns, distilleries, breweries, and wineries that don’t serve food in certain Nevada counties must close effective 11:59 p.m. today to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in the State. Today, the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) announced the elevated disease transmission criteria for determining whether a county must revert back to Phase 1 for bars, in addition to the seven counties that meet that criteria. Counties that meet two of the three criteria are considered an “Elevated Disease Transmission” county, and will be subject to the restrictions as laid out by Gov. Sisolak last night, and included in the attached Directive.

*This information is intended to serve as a general informational resource. All building owners and operators should develop and implement a water management program tailored to the specifics for each individual onsite water system.
With buildings shut down or infrequently used during the COVID-19 pandemic, water is not circulating through plumbing systems and has become stagnant. As a result, disinfectants in the water dissipate, potentially allowing microorganisms, bacteria and pathogens to grow within plumbing systems. Prolonged building water stagnation can temporarily influence lead, copper and Legionella issues, which can potentially reduce the quality of water in the building’s plumbing system.
As building re-openings occur, business owners, operators and facility managers will need to take necessary steps to ensure the safety of their onsite water systems. This information provides guidance and best practices for flushing plumbing systems in buildings that have been closed or infrequently used as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It includes information and recommendations from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Water Works Association
