On Sunday November 22nd, the Governor of Nevada held a press conference to discuss our Covid plan for the next 3 weeks.

As infection rates increase going into the holiday season around the world, the numbers here in Nevada could cause an issue in hospitals. The state decided to take some preventative measures as follows.

Beginning on November 24th at 12:01 am, adjusted restrictions take affect during the “Nevada Pause” in hopes of lowering the number of infections.

Updated Restrictions

  • Masks are now mandated at all times for indoor and outdoor activities. The only exceptions being within your own household or while eating and drinking at a restaurant.
  • Private gatherings should be limited to 10 people from no more then 2 households. Masks should be worn during the gathering by anyone outside of the household.
  • Public gatherings are to be limited to 50 people or 25% of fire code capacity, whichever is less. No larger events will be approved during the pause, and if they were already planned they must be canceled.
    • This includes weddings, funerals, churches, movie theaters, live performances, or any other celebration/event where the public may gather.
  • Restaurants and bars must reduce capacity to 25% and seat no more then 4 people per table. Restaurants may not accepts walk-ins and must use a reservation system.
  • Casinos must limit capacity to 25% and follow Nevada Gaming Control Board guidelines.
  • Retailers may remain at 50% capacity. If the establishment is over 50,000 square feet they must have an employee to count and maintain these limitation and limits must be posted at all public entrances.
  • Gyms, fitness centers, dance studios, and other fitness programs must reduce capacity to 25% with strict social distancing guidelines. Masks must be worn at all times, even during indoor exercise.
  • Youth sports and tournaments must be paused.
  • Brothels, adults entertainment, and day/night clubs must remain closed.

Once we near the 3 week mark for the pause, the Governor will reevaluate the numbers and determine if restrictions will be lifted or become stricter. Nothing is certain as we proceed over the next few weeks but we will keep you up to date as things progress.
