Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has announced that he tested negative for Covid-19, according to a statement posted on Twitter today.
A staffer who works in the Nevada governor’s office at the capitol in Carson City tested positive on Tuesday. The governor’s office did not name the worker, but noted that they had not been in close contact with Sisolak in weeks.
Sisolak said he was tested “out of an abundance of caution” and that his office continues “to wish our team member a full and quick recovery.”
Today’s statement noted that Sisolak is scheduled to return to Carson City next week but “travel is on hold for the time being.”
The statement added that “the contact tracing effort is underway” and that all the staff who came into contact with the confirmed positive team member “transitioned to work from home status on Monday.”
