CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada will begin allowing restaurants, salons and other nonessential businesses to open starting Saturday.
Gov. Steve Sisolak said Thursday that he would begin lifting restrictions on the state's economy, which was largely shuttered in mid-March, because Nevada reported 14 days of decreasing hospitalizations and positive tests for the coronavirus.
The governor says he's still encouraging people to get takeout or food delivery, but restaurants may open if they limit capacity to 50% and keep customers seated 6 feet apart.
Salons and barbershops cannot accept walk-ins and must keep customers spaced apart. Sisolak says casinos, nightclubs, spas and gyms must remain closed.
