Correction to Carson City Health and Human Services Press Release on March 9, 2020

Carson City March 09, 2020

Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) prematurely issued a press release regarding Nevada passengers on the Grand Princess cruise ship which has been under quarantine due to COVID-19.

The State of Nevada is coordinating with all local health districts to ensure that Nevadans on the ship who may need medical monitoring and services get the care they require, in addition to ensuring any plan has safeguards in place to protect our communities.

Some information contained in the CCHHS press release is inaccurate, and does not advance our shared interest in keeping Nevadans well-informed and safe.

The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public and Behavioral Health will release accurate information once the details have been finalized with federal agencies.
