The Current State of Nevada amid COVID-19

The state of Nevada gradually lifted its statewide stay-at-home protocols on May 9th under Phase 1 of their reopening guidelines. Due to the success of the state and its citizens' collective efforts to flatten the curve, the Nevada State Governor Sisolak announced that Nevada is now “ready to begin Phase 2 of reopening.”

In this article we will briefly discuss the following:

  • “Nevada United: A Roadmap to Recovery”
  • Reopening Nevada: Phased-in Approach
  • Nevada Reopening Checklists

Nevada United: A Roadmap to Recovery

“Nevada United: A Roadmap to Recovery” is a guideline that empowers local communities to reopen in a safe and responsible manner. It outlines state-specific plans to keep Nevadans safe as the state charts toward the “new normal.”

The state of Nevada has released the following statewide standards for businesses and employers:

  • Wear face coverings at all times for both customers and employees
  • Encourage telework or have employees return to work in phases
  • Close common areas where personnel are likely to gather and interact
  • Encourage employees to do daily self-assessments to check if they have any COVID-19 type symptoms
  • Remind employees to stay home when sick
  • Frequently perform intensified environmental cleaning of high touch surfaces
  • Social distancing & sanitation practices

These general guidelines will be pivotal for businesses to remain open. Repercussions will be given to those who are non-compliant.

Reopening Nevada: Phased-in Approach

Starting on May 29th the state will be moving towards phase two where additional businesses and entities will be allowed to reopen under strict guidance. Businesses that reopened during Phase 1 are expected to continue to maintain the same restrictions and guidelines.

As part of Nevada’s Roadmap to Recovery, the local empowerment advisory panel (LEAP) has released industry-specific guidance for phase 2. Business owners and employees are encouraged to review the guidelines and protocols in the guidance document and consider best practices according to their industry. “All businesses who are operating in Phase 2 must also abide by measures set forth by OSHA and other regulatory authorities,” Gov. Sisolak added.

Upon the success of phase 2, future phases will be implemented gradually with goals of easing more restrictions until the state returns to normalcy.

Reopening Checklists for Nevada Businesses

As most of Nevada’s businesses reopen under Phase 2, additional restrictions will be in place. Checks, screening, and self-assessments will be vital to daily operations. To assist business owners in Nevada, we have prepared these ready-to-use digital checklists to ensure safe reopening.
