Las Vegas Casinos Get Mask Mandate Back

Gamblers heading to Las Vegas will once again be required to don a face mask when on the betting floor following a new emergency directive by Nevada's Governor Steve Sisolak.

Sisolak signed Emergency Directive 047 on July 27th, which applies to Clark County (home of Las Vegas), Carson City, Churchill, Douglass, Elko, Esmeralda, Lincoln, Lyon, Mineral, Nye, Washoe (home to Reno), and White Pine. The order will require those visiting casinos to wear face masks when inside a casino's property in an effort to cut down on a fourth wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, which is affecting large swaths of those unvaccinated.

The directive read in part: "Effective at 12:01 a.m. on the third day following the CDC's release of any guidance related to face coverings, 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 the guidance issued by the CDC, and any subsequent guidance issued by the CDC."

The order will remain in effect until Sisolak terminates the order.
