County will change COVID-19 plan after rebuke from Reno, health district and school district

Lucey said commissioners on Tuesday approved changes with the belief that the plan, in conjunction with the newly issued directive, would satisfy all parties. Commissioners, in turn, repeatedly expressed frustration. “Indeed, the plan retained its endorsement from the City of Sparks and the Nevada Hospital Association,” he said.

“We have had to alter that plan multiple times, and through the directive that was received by us on Tuesday … we went along with our endorsed plan … but subsequently made the changes to adhere to … the state guidelines,” said County Commissioner Bob Lucey. “We obviously did not have much time to gather or gain the endorsements from the other stakeholders at the time.” Washoe County Commissioner Bob Lucey

During the commission meeting, Assistant County Manager Dave Solaro was unable to answer specifics due to only having received the directive moments before having to make a presentation about the plan. Sisolak’s COVID-19 response director, Caleb Cage, today accepted responsibility for the confusion caused by Sisolak’s directive that put the commissioners in a tailspin about what they were approving.

Nevada counties today presented their plans to a statewide task force to begin the reopening process starting May 1, the date counties take over control for COVID-19 mitigation efforts. Only one other county presented a modified plan. Washoe County will have to provide a modified plan with required endorsements by local jurisdictions prior to May 1. “A key component of the endorsed plan that was discussed with the workgroup and agreed upon was the requirement to observe the CDC guidelines for social distancing through May 2021 before going to 100% capacity on June 1,” Dick wrote. “The Board of County Commissioners eliminated that requirement.”

Both cited increased transmissions of the B.1.1.7 variant as well as the shutdown of Bishop Manogue High School due to another outbreak at the school attributed to social gatherings. But District Health Officer Kevin Dick and Reno City Manager Doug Thornely both penned letters of complaint to the state after the county meeting.
