The state of Nevada is no longer requiring masks to be won inside casinos.

According to an announcement Thursday from the Nevada Gaming Control Board, casino guests do not have to wear a face covering, unless the casino itself has its own policy.

“Pursuant to Governor Sisolak’s Emergency Directive 052, effective immediately, individuals are no longer required to wear a mask in public indoor settings in licensed gaming establishments, unless a local jurisdiction still imposes such a requirement,” the NGCB said. “If a licensee is subject to a local jurisdiction’s requirement relating to masks, the Board expects full compliance from the licensee.”

“In conjunction with state and local health officials, the Nevada Gaming Control Board will continue to ensure that best practices are used in the mitigation of COVID-19, and its effect on licensee operations, and will issue further notices as appropriate,” regulators added in the announcement.

On Thursday, Gov. Sisolak commented on the Omicron wave subsiding.

“We have seen a rapid decline in case of numbers coupled with declining hospitalizations; a drop of COVID-19 detected in wastewater, and a broader availability of testing and available treatments,” he said Thursday.
