In accordance with Emergency Response Policy 045, the State of Nevada has adopted the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines regarding mandatory masks, effective Friday, July 30, 2021. All people, regardless of vaccination status, must wear masks in indoor public spaces in counties where transmission is high or high. Visit the CDC for more information on the COVID-19 pandemic. On February 10, 2022, Governor Steve Sisolak lifted the nationwide mask requirement, effective immediately. Masks will no longer be mandatory in public places, but there are places where Nevadans and visitors can still be asked to wear a mask. Requirements for masks and protective equipment in facilities for vulnerable populations – such as hospitals, clinics and long-term care facilities – are monitored under the direction of the Ministry of Health. Even at the federal level, masks are still mandatory at airports, planes, public buses and school buses.
To inform Nevada residents nationwide, the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Governor`s Office have created this website to better share information and resources about the current coronavirus (COVID-19) status and its impact in the state of Nevada.
