LAS VEGAS (AP) – Vaccinated guests, dancers, business owners and bodybuilders will be among those who can go maskless starting June 1 in the Las Vegas area after the county’s lawmakers passed new federal guidelines and plans to bind occupancy limits on Tuesday for companies have dropped public vaccination rates.
“Clark County will scrap its plan entirely,” said Marilyn Kirkpatrick, chair of the Las Vegas Strip commission, ahead of a unanimous vote to lift local restrictions, in her words, “send everyone back to pre-pandemic guidelines.” . ”
Commissioner Jim Gibson said the county’s rules became meaningless after Democratic Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak on Friday reconciled state mask requirements with recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The CDC said people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can stop distancing people and wearing masks outdoors in crowds and in most indoor spaces.
Unvaccinated individuals should continue to wear masks as per guidelines, and the CDC said everyone – whether fully vaccinated or not – should continue to use masks in crowded indoor spaces such as airplanes, buses, hospitals and prisons.
Most of the resorts and hotels in Las Vegas are already 100% full in the casino, with approval from the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
