LAS VEGAS (AP) — Clark County, which includes Las Vegas, will assume control of COVID-19 mitigation efforts on Saturday, increasing capacity limits to 80% and reducing social distancing to three feet.
Currently, the county is following capacity restrictions of 50% occupancy for public gatherings and six feet of social distancing.
Nevada COVID-19 Response Director Caleb Cage notified the county on Tuesday that the state authorized giving the county control over virus mitigation and safety measures beginning May 1.
The Clark County Commission approved the 42-page plan on April 20, which allows some businesses to reopen, including nightclubs and adult entertainment venues. Facial coverings will continue to be required.
