Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak signed an emergency directive Monday, which aligns the state’s mask mandate with the latest information from the CDC.
Changes in the directive, which is effective immediately, include:
- Effective immediately, individuals not exempted by Directive 024, Directive 028, or guidance issued by the Nevada Health Response shall be required to cover their nose and mouth with a mask or face covering in a manner consistent with current guidance issued by the CDC, and any subsequent guidance issued by the CDC. This Section does not apply to participants in certain activities or events, including but not limited to: athletes, performers, or musicians, to the extent other directives set forth less restrictive face-covering requirements for those participants.
- Businesses shall ensure that all patrons, customers, patients, or clients utilize face coverings consistent with this Directive, which may include prohibiting persons without face coverings from entering any indoor premises.
