Las Vegas area will lift all COVID restrictions on June 1st

Beginning June 1st, Las Vegas and surrounding Clark County will lift all previous COVID restrictions and adopt the CDC’s newest guidelines for vaccinated and unvaccinated people in all spaces. 


This means that fully-vaccinated people will no longer need to wear masks in most indoor or outdoor spaces regardless of crowd size (unless otherwise instructed by the business itself). It also means that all indoor businesses, venues, and events such as weddings and concerts in Clark County will be allowed to return to their full, pre-pandemic capacity. Unvaccinated people should continue to mask and social distance while indoors. 


A few limitations will stay in place: The CDC guidelines recommend that both vaccinated and unvaccinated people continue to wear masks and social distance in certain crowded public spaces, including hospitals, prisons, assisted living facilities, and in transportation hubs such as airports and train stations, or while riding public transportation. 


In a message posted on the official Las Vegas website on May 18, officials said that they were hopeful vaccination rates would continue to rise in the county, and that new restrictions could be put in place if hospitalization numbers increase : 



“The Clark County Commission also decided that the local COVID-19 mitigation plan will expire June 1, allowing for the return of pre-pandemic guidelines that lift restrictions involving capacity limits, large gatherings and more. Increasing vaccination rates, a low positivity rate and normal hospitalization rates all justify the lifting of restrictions. In the event that hospitalizations should rise, additional mitigation measures may be required for the protection of the community.


In ending the mitigation plan, a provision was dropped that required 60 percent of eligible residents to have at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine before reopening to 100 percent capacity. Officials are hopeful vaccination rates will increase in the community as efforts continue to make the vaccines widely accessible to the public through pop-up clinics, community sites and special events.”
