Nevada began Phase 2 of reopening on May 29th, 2020. Meaning some restaurants, casinos, and other businesses will be allowed to pen and function at a smaller capacity than normal. Full details about what kinds of businesses and when each will open have yet to be released, but are said to be made available sooner rather than later. Governor Sisolak has given some guidelines that businesses must follow in order to be allowed to reopen. In no way are businesses being forced to reopen, they are simply being given an option to do so.
For consumers and locals, these regulations include the requirement to wear face coverings and the constant disinfecting of common areas by management and staff of the business. Businesses have full authority to refuse service to those who enter the establishment without a face covering or to those who refuse to comply with CDC regulations. These include social distancing, safe handling of objects in the facility, as well as capacity regulations made by the business owners and staff.
Nevada is on the way to recovery and the public plays the biggest factor in ensuring that our communities stay healthy and safe. For more information on regulations and on business reopenings stay posted on our website as we will keep you updated.
