Legality of Nevada malaria treatment ban

"Sisolak [the Governor if Nevada] signed an emergency order earlier Tuesday barring the use of anti-malaria drugs for someone who has the coronavirus. The order restricting chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine came after President Donald Trump touted the medication as a treatment and falsely stated that the Food and Drug Administration had just approved the use of chloroquine to treat patients infected with coronavirus. Sisolak said in a statement that thereís no consensus among experts or Nevada doctors that the drugs can treat people with COVID-19."
Is this even legal? What about the "right to try" law? What about off label use of an FDA drug approved for something else? Is the Nevada Governor practicing medicine without a license? Can anyone harmed or whose family members are harmed from not being able to use the drugs to treat Covid-19 sue him? How can he be removed from office?
