    Nevada Gold Mines (NGM) has formed a partnership with the Rural Nevada Development Corporation (RNDC) to make at least $5 million available for short-term small business and startup loan funding for those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic along the Nevada rural I-80 corridor.

    Gov. Steve Sisolak is rolling back orders to close bars in three rural counties but keeping closure orders in place in Las Vegas and Reno, while signaling a new emphasis on interventions that are narrowly tailored to noncompliant businesses and hotspot regions rather than entire industries.

He also expressed second thoughts about shutting down bars wholesale.
