Nevada OSHA Fines 11 Businesses Over Coronavirus Compliance

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Walmart in Mesquite and a Nieman Marcus store on the Las Vegas Strip were among 11 businesses fined last week by state inspectors for failure to comply with coronavirus pandemic mitigation measures.

A Nevada Occupational Safety and Health statement said Monday that a tire shop in Fernley was the only northern Nevada business that made the list following about 700 initial workplace visits statewide.

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak announced recently that he would focus more closely on data specific to businesses and municipalities rather than broad guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
