Effective June 1, Las Vegas has removed all restrictions involving capacity limits, large gatherings and more.

In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our community, effective July 30, the State of Nevada has mandated that everyone, including fully vaccinated individuals, wear a mask in public indoor settings in counties with substantial or high transmission, including Las Vegas. The directive aligns with the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance related to mask requirements.
