With the number of Covid-19 infections going up like a wildcat oil well Governor Steve Sisolak has lowered the boom – when in public WEAR A MASK. Those who don’t are subject to a ticket.
In short, there’s a time to be a fully conscious adult understanding that the Covid-19 threat is all around them. We’re not watching a movie – WE’RE IN IT.
Governor Sisolak pointed out Washington State and California both enacted mandatory mask requirements to bring down rapidly rising infection rates. Governor Sisolak said Nevada’s major casinos are very strict about wearing masks while at the gaming tables or slot machines. Kitchen workers included. Those who refuse to wear the masks are asked to leave the property unless they can produce proof of a medical issue. There are exceptions: Children under age 9, the homeless, anyone with a medical condition or disability who can’t remove a mask without assistance, when a mask would be an occupational hazard, may be removed when eating in a restaurant (must be six feet of separation), and permitted while recreating by swimming, walking, hiking bicycling or running. The Covid-19 is monstrously infectious. It’s killing people around the world, and the death rates are well above “average” in the United States.
In short: Wear a mask – STAY ALIVE!!
