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

Restaurants are now allowed to extend their capacity limits to 80 percent, still urging the public to follow proper CDC guidelines.

Grocery stores

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.

Casinos

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.

Buffets

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.

Adult entertainment

All employers must provide face coverings to employees, and employees must wear them, and all patrons must wear them when not actively eating, drinking, or smoking, a policy no different from the current requirements at restaurants and bars. 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.

Nightclubs

Maximum occupancy for a nightclub is 50 percent. All employers and employees must wear face coverings when not eating, drinking, or smoking, and every patron must wear a face covering when not actively eating, drinking, or smoking. A business must encourage frequent and thorough hand washing, as well as providing workers, customers, and worksite visitors with a place to wash their hands.

The Youth Power Project is a group of politically active youth who fight for issues that impact youth in our state. It is youth led and youth organized, given this they are the best voices to speak out about anything educational justice. Currently, they have been joining forces with other youth leaders across the state to make their demands of a diverse education a reality. 

 

Our children have the right to an education. The education should consist of a broad spectrum of topics that discuss the contributions and history of Black, Indigenous, people of color (BIPOC) communities. Unfortunately, this is not the education our students are receiving. The education they receive is hyperfocused on the White influences, White figures, and if the topic of BIPOC communities is discussed the conversation is about the oppressions and injustices they have experienced. A state-wide fight is underway being led by the youth of our state from different counties to mandate an inclusive education model that discusses the contributions of and the importance of BIPOC figures. In educating our children about courageous people they can identify with. We open the doors to bigger dreams in our students, higher achievements, and a potential increase in the interest of students in school. 

 

We all want to be represented. Our students want to be able to see themselves in their textbooks and learn about their heritages without having to dig so deep into history. MRNV’s Youth Power Project has taken on the challenge to change this frame of education that too often bypasses the stories of BIPOC folk. Their work has just begun, but their power is undeniable.
