18 May Las Vegas is Reopening
Governor Sisolak anticipates a complete reopening of COVID-19 mitigation requirements by June 1st. “Based on consultation with our state health officials, I am pleased to announce that I’m very confident every county in the state of Nevada, will be able to fully reopen at 100 percent capacity by June 1,” He announced in a press conference.
As proposed by the Clark County Commission on April 20, capacity restrictions for public gatherings will be increased to 80 percent effective May 1, distance requirements will be reduced from six to three feet, and nightclubs may reopen.
Restaurants are now allowed to extend their capacity limits to 80 percent, still urging the public to follow proper CDC guidelines.
If self-service salad bars, salsa bars, olive bars, condiment stations, and bulk food bins are supervised by an employee, hand sanitizer is provided, service utensils are changed out every hour, and patrons and employees have separated appropriately, they could return. If samples are consumed, face covers must be replaced right away.
As long as licensed gaming establishments in Nevada are licensed, the Nevada Gaming Control Board will have jurisdiction over their gaming areas, including gaming floors.
Self-serve buffets can reopen if they are supervised by an employee, if hand sanitizer is available to patrons, and if service utensils are changed every hour.

At 50 percent capacity, the business must provide workers, customers, and visitors with places to wash their hands, including frequent and thorough hand washing. The gentlemen’s club must provide routine cleaning and disinfection of surfaces and equipment and conduct daily surveys of staff health conditions.
