1 minute read
Nevada’s Governor Steve Sisolak has put in place a number of increased restrictions to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19), including a limit of 25% capacity on casinos, to be in place for the next three weeks.

The measures took effect yesterday (24 November) and were developed in partnership with public health experts, business and economic leaders.

Under the new restrictions restaurants, bars, casinos and gaming operations, gyms, fitness facilities and other businesses and activities will be limited to 25% of their applicable fire code capacity, a significant decrease from the previous limit of 50%.

Retail stores, including grocery stores, will continue to operate at 50% capacity. In addition, public gatherings will be limited to no more than 50 people, or 25% of a venue’s capacity, whichever is less.

 “As your Governor, I am confident that I did all I could to avoid further restrictions and keep us on the path forward, but now I must act. In this defining moment, I implore Nevadans to tap into their independent spirit and consider their own personal responsibility,” Governor Sisolak said.

“Ultimately, our individual actions decide whether we are going to prioritize getting our children into the classroom, allowing our businesses to operate under safe measures, and protecting our hospital system and healthcare workers,” he continued.
