Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak said the state is nowhere near ready to begin reopening parts of its shuttered economy due to the coronavirus and is working to address a deluge of residents trying to get unemployment benefits.

The Democratic governor said in a Tuesday night news conference that he doesn’t have any specific benchmarks he’d like to see before considering easing closures, but he will rely on a team of doctors who have been advising him while considering factors such as the rates of infection and deaths, the impacts on hospitals and business input.
