Clarification: COVID Mitigation Measures & Local Management

Clarification

On May 1st, the State of Nevada is transferring some COVID-19 safety measures to control of the counties.

However, in Nevada's Roadmap to Recovery (pg. 3), "baseline measures will remain in place and will continue to be enforced by the State."

  • Statewide mask requirement as outlined in Directive 024. 
  • Social distancing and hygiene considerations as outlined in Directive 02
  • School reopening and operational requirements as outlined in Directives 022, 028, and 038
  • Crisis Standards of Care as outlined in Directive 011.
  • Additionally, industries regulated by the state, whether through professional licensing boards covered in Title 54 of the Nevada Revised Statutes, through state agencies, or through independent regulatory bodies such as the Gaming Control Board, will continue to follow the statewide baseline standards for COVID-19 mitigation measures and any mitigation measures promulgated by their respective regulatory bodies.

Regarding schools, this means that all students, staff, and visitors to all school buildings and events will continue to be required to wear a mask and social distance.
