Yesterday evening, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak announced bars, pubs, taverns, distilleries, breweries, and wineries that don’t serve food in certain Nevada counties must close effective 11:59 p.m. today to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in the State.

Counties currently included are Clark, Elko, Humboldt, Lander, Lyon, Nye, and Washoe.
