The new regulations require masks for Nevadans for both indoor and outdoor activities except within ones own household or while eating and drinking.

All private gatherings will be limited to 10 people and from no more than two households, whether indoors or outdoors.

Gyms and other fitness studios must operate at 25% occupancy. Masks worn at all times, except when drinking.

Occupancy at all restaurants and bars, either indoor or outdoor, will be reduced to 25% and no more than four people will be allowed at a table.

“I know the majority of our bars and restaurants are doing their best, but these settings are proven to be high risk because they allow the opportunity for people to remove their face coverings in indoor settings around people outside of their household. That’s how the virus spreads,” the Democratic governor said.
