The State of Nevada approved Clark County’s Local COVID-19 Mitigation and Enforcement Plan which will go into effect Saturday, May 1. As part of the plan, Clark County is threatening business owners and the general public, attempting to blackmail locals into getting vaccinated if they ever want to return to normal.
The plan requires 60 percent of Nevada’s population receive at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
“Our community has been great so far about getting vaccinated,” said Clark County Commission Chairman Marilyn Kirkpatrick. “If everyone just keeps it up, we’ll get to open up the community 100 percent.”

Dancing venues are still not allowed to operate their dance floors and have been told the ban on dancing will continue until 60 percent of the eligible population is vaccinated.
Large gatherings with less than 20,000 people will be approved at 3 feet social distancing with up to 80 percent capacity if (1) the venue is outdoors or if indoors and the area is well ventilated; and (2) 50 percent of the community has completed their first dose of a vaccination for COVID-19. Capacity can increase to 100 percent with no social distancing with less than 20,000 attendees if (1) all attendees have either completed their vaccination for COVID-19 at least 14 days prior to the event or are tested using a PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test 24 to 48 hours prior to the event and have evidence of a negative test result; (2) the venue is outdoors or if indoors the area is well ventilated; and (3) 50 percent of the eligible community has completed their first dose of a vaccination.
When 60 percent of the eligible community has been vaccinated, capacity at large gathering venues can increase to 100 percent with no social distancing.
dult entertainment establishments also can operate under strict social distancing requirements at no more than 80 percent capacity but entertainers must be at least three feet from members of the public if the entertainer has taken the first dose of the vaccine and only after 14 days of the vaccination date. The entertainer must complete the second dose of the vaccine within six seeks of taking the first dose, if applicable. Or, the entertainer must take a weekly COVID PCR test and receive a negative result.
Nightclubs and dayclubs will be able to operate at 80 percent occupancy May 1. Until 60 percent of the eligible population has received at least one dose of a vaccine, designated areas for dancing must remain closed. Once the designated areas for dancing are permitted in a non-restricted gaming license location, they will be considered “club venues” and also will fall under the authority of the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
Even if vaccination goals are hit, Masks will continue to be required, per Nevada Directive 24 and Section 4 of Directive 28.
