The city board of health may:


Abate nuisances in accordance with law.


Establish a temporary isolation hospital or quarantine station when an emergency demands the isolation or quarantine of a person or a group of persons.


Restrain, quarantine and disinfect any person or a group of persons sick with or exposed to any contagious or infectious disease which is dangerous to the public health.


Appoint quarantine officers when necessary to enforce a quarantine, and shall provide whatever medicines, disinfectants and provisions which may be required. The city council shall pay all debts or charges so incurred, but each patient shall, if able, pay for his or her food, medicine, clothes and medical attendance.


Subject to the prior review and approval of the governing body of the city and except as otherwise provided in NRS 576.128, adopt a schedule of reasonable fees to be collected for issuing or renewing any health permit or license required to be obtained from such board pursuant to state law or an ordinance adopted by any political subdivision. Such fees must be for the sole purpose of defraying the costs and expenses of the procedures for issuing licenses and permits, and investigations related thereto, and not for the purposes of general revenue.
