Sisolak said he is currently experiencing no symptoms, though earlier in the week he “felt a little fatigue, which I attributed to my demanding schedule.”

The Democratic governor, 66, previously tested negative on Nov. 2 and Nov. 6, he said.

He is still awaiting results from a PCR test, which is more accurate than a rapid test.

“Consistent with guidelines from the CDC and the DHHS, I am isolating and continuing to monitor my symptoms,” Sisolak said. “All public events have been canceled at this time. I remain in constant contact with my staff and my Cabinet and the work of the Governor’s Office will continue remotely.”
