LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - JUNE 25: Entertainer Emilie Condamine (C) participates in a fashion show in front of the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign on the Las Vegas Strip to kick off the pro-mask wearing campaign "Mask Up for Nevada" put on by Experience Strategy Associates amid the spread of the coronavirus on June 25, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. On Wednesday, Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak signed a directive requiring people to wear face coverings in public places throughout the state beginning on June 26 in response to a four-week upward trend of new daily COVID-19 cases. The governor also cited an increase in confirmed and suspected COVID-19 hospitalizations since the state entered Phase 2 of the state's reopening plan on May 29 as a reason for the mandate.

State officials are emphasizing that Nevada is open for visitors with precautions in place despite a weekend where the state passed the 200,000 mark in known COVID-19 infections. The state tourism promotions chief said Monday that Las Vegas casinos are “open within the limits of the capacity determined by the governor.” Gov. Steve Sisolak has set occupancy limits for restaurants, bars, casino floors and gyms, and 25% for many businesses. New Year’s fireworks that typically draw 300,000 people to the resort-lined Las Vegas Strip have been canceled. But tourism officials say properties are taking precautions “to make New Year’s Eve safe and memorable.”
