Amendment to Clark County’s COVID-19 Local Mitigation and Enforcement Plan: https://twitter.com/ClarkCountyNV/status/1418017406631378944.
Issued July 21, 2021
Per Governor Steve Sisolak’s Emergency Directive #044, decisions on capacity limits, social distancing, and other COVID-19 mitigation measures transitioned to local authority on May 1, 2021, in accordance with the state’s Roadmap to Recovery. On July 20, 2021, the Board of County Commissioners for Clark County upon recommendation from the Southern Nevada Health District approved a motion to require all employees of a Clark County business licensee to wear a face covering while working in a public space. This order applies to all employees of cannabis sales facilities.
This order becomes effective at 12:00 am on Thursday July 22, 2021.
The CCB maintains regulatory authority over all cannabis licensees. All current cannabis laws, rules and regulations remain in effect. Failure to adhere to the order may result in discipline, including civil penalties and/or suspension.
