NV (STL.News) Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak issued the following statement reflecting on the one-year anniversary of the first presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 in Nevada.
The events of the last year – brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic – have tried our State and country like never before. But through it all – Nevadans remained determined, resilient and strong.
I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the events of the past year for our State. Through all the ups and downs, Nevadans have come together to support our families, friends and other loved ones through unimaginable tragedies. As of today, we have lost more than 5,000 of our fellow Nevadans to this devastating virus.
That’s 5,000 of our neighbors, our friends, and our family members. The loss is incalculable. The devastation will leave a permanent mark.
We will continue to honor each of their legacies – we will never forget the love and comfort they gave to us when they were here – and we will continue to hold them close in our hearts.
During these challenging times, we have seen the very best of the Nevada spirit – through the heroes that continue to help us get through these challenging times.
