SNHD Recommends Face Coverings For All In Public Settings
July 19, 2021
In response to the rise in COVID-19 case counts and the positivity rate in Clark County, the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) recommended on July 16 that both vaccinated and unvaccinated people wear masks in “crowded indoor public places where they may have contact with others who are not fully vaccinated.” The SNHD’s recommendation includes grocery stores, malls, large events and casinos.
This is currently a recommendation, not a requirement. Clark County has not made any changes to its COVID-19 Mitigation Plan, and we will update you if new requirements are issued. In the meantime, however, it may be prudent for Clark County’s employers to consider reestablishing a face covering requirement for those employees who have frequent contact with the public, work in crowded areas, and/or who interact regularly with those who may be unvaccinated.
If you have questions or we can assist you in these matters, please contact a KZA attorney.
