    Gov. Steve Sisolak’s office says that franchised car dealerships are allowed to continue operating in a limited manner through the state’s 30-day nonessential business shutdown, but must comply with social distancing protocols and other requirements to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
    A spokeswoman for Nevada Health Response — the state’s centralized agency for tracking and responding to COVID-19 — confirmed to The Nevada Independent on Thursday that car dealerships can continue operating during the business shutdown, even though they are not explicitly mentioned in emergency regulations outlining the types of businesses allowed to continue operations.

  • Guns and ammunition sellers allowed to operate, exempted in law from ‘nonessential’ business shutdown
    Wednesday, April 1, 2020 1:00 AM
    An emergency directive and subsequent regulations that outline the types of businesses considered ‘essential’ or ‘nonessential’ in Gov. Steve Sisolak’s shutdown order did not mention one major industry — businesses that sell firearms and ammunition.
    That’s because under a state law passed in 2007, the state government is explicitly prohibited from confiscating firearms or adopting any policies that impose “additional restrictions as to the lawful possession, transfer, sale, carrying, storage, display or use of” firearms, ammunition or firearm components in a declared state of emergency.

    However, there was some confusion across the state as to which businesses are considered to be essential and which are not especially when it comes to food production.
