All Nevada Counties Now Have Local COVID-19 Control

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Local authority over COVID-19 restrictions has now been granted to all of Nevada's 17 counties.

The latest addition came Monday when Washoe County commissioners approved a revised plan for the Reno-Sparks area and successfully submitted the necessary endorsements to the state's mitigation task force.

Masks remain mandatory. But control over all other COVID-19 measures began May 1 in Las Vegas and all of Nevada's other counties under local plans.

Washoe County's new plan eliminates capacity limits effective June 1, unless there's a big spike in the new cases. In the meantime, it allows full capacity in businesses with enough space to still comply with 6-feet social distancing.
