Mask Questions Linger Even As Vaccination Rate Increases
To mask, or not to mask?
With more than 35 percent of Nevada’s population fully vaccinated, that’s what Nevadans are asking themselves these days. But is that percentage high enough to leave the mask behind when out in public?
In some cases, it seems to be. Some local gyms have done away with masks, shields, and hand sanitizers. Some casinos and stores like Trader Joe's, Walmart, and Costco don’t require masks for fully vaccinated people.
