Lawyer: Las Vegas-Area Bars Might Open Again Midnight Thursday

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas bars and taverns might be allowed to open again at midnight Thursday, even though a Nevada judge declined to force Gov. Steve Sisolak to lift a coronavirus closure order.

Attorney Dennis Kennedy represents drinking establishments that sued to reopen.

He pointed Tuesday to the governor's directive last week that would let bars open at 50% capacity with employees wearing face coverings and customers sitting six feet apart.

A newly formed coronavirus mitigation task force could still extend the bar closures order based on its reading of Clark County coronavirus cases. The task force meets hours before restrictions would expire.
