This week, Governor Sisolak signed Emergency Directive 050, which expands the mask exception for large indoor events to now include conventions within counties that have “substantial” or “high” COVID-19 transmission if all attendees are vaccinated. This policy expansion gives an option for convention organizers to choose between requiring masks indoors for all attendees, regardless of vaccination status, or ensuring that all attendees are vaccinated, in which case fully-vaccinated attendees can remove their masks. This is not a requirement to show proof of vaccination to attend a convention. It is an optional exception to the mask requirement if the convention operator chooses to require proof of vaccination for all attendees. More guidance regarding this new directive can be found HERE.
On September 1st, the Clark County School District held a marathon 8-hour meeting to discuss mandating the COVID-19 vaccine for employees. The vote was 5-1 in favor, but the plan remains subject to negotiations with employee bargaining groups. With 320,000 students, CCSD is the 5th largest school district in the country.
