Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak said on Tuesday that his administration will lift all statewide COVID-19 restrictions at the beginning of June and turn over all viral mitigation efforts to individual counties.

"As with every decision I've had to make throughout this pandemic, I know many people will say this is too soon, others will say it's not soon enough," said Sisolak.

Counties will be given oversight of their own guidelines starting in May, although the state will keep its mask mandate in place for the time being.

Coronavirus cases in Nevada have fallen nearly 90% since a high in December, with an average of 223 cases and three deaths on Monday. Around 23% of the adult population has been vaccinated.
