Governor Sisolak announced this week that his team has been reviewing President Biden’s Path Out of The Pandemic. The State is working with federal and local partners to prepare to implement the plan. In some cases, the State is waiting on more federal guidance or for federal regulations to be put in place. Overall, the President’s plan aligns with many of the plans and initiatives already in place in Nevada. This week, the Governor signed emergency regulations that require State of Nevada employees who work with vulnerable populations in state-operated, licensed health care settings or state-operated detention facilities to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
On Monday, the Las Vegas Raiders held their first regular season home game at Allegiant Stadium open to fans. Based on the Governor’s directive, only fans who had initiated the COVID-19 vaccination process were able to attend the game. In line with the directive, fully vaccinated attendees could remove their mask at the game. 300 COVID-19 vaccines were administered on-site Monday before the game and the Raiders reported that almost 6,000 fans initiated the vaccine process because of the policy put in place by the Governor and adopted by the Raiders.
