Shots urged for state workers


State employees who aren’t fully vaccinated for COVID19 must take weekly virus tests starting Aug. 15.

Vaccinatio­n “is the best tool we have to combat this virus and we are committed to making state government a safe and healthy environmen­t for all employees and the public,” said Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak.

State employees who live in substantia­l or high transmissi­on counties — which covers nearly all of the state — generally must wear a mask while working, the governor’s statement noted.
