County webpage for Coronavirus (COVID-19) information launched

Nye County has set up a webpage to help share information with the communities throughout the county in an effort to keep residents informed. 

Please read the procedures below on seeking medical attention and protection as promoted by the state: 

  • Do not go to the emergency department unless it is essential. Emergency departments need to be able to serve those with the most critical needs. 
  • If you have a mild cough, fever, or other respiratory symptoms, contact your doctor first. 

Practice everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses: 

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 
  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. 
  • Stay home when you are sick.
