Las Vegas workers now demanded to wear masks indoors to combat ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated’

LAS VEGAS —  Clark County commissioners have mandated that all employees operating indoors in a public house must have on masks — an effort to help stem the rapid spread of COVID-19 in new months.

Adopted throughout an emergency assembly Tuesday, the new limits come 3 months after federal authorities introduced that fully vaccinated men and women no extended have to put on masks in most indoor and outdoor areas.

But new coronavirus circumstances leaped in Nevada the week ending Sunday, soaring 51.8% as 5,024 scenarios were being described. The past week experienced 3,309 new cases of the virus that results in COVID-19. 

“One option, of system, is wearing a mask,” Southern Nevada Wellness District Main Clinical Officer Cortland Lohff told commissioners.

The new mandate will be powerful at midnight Wednesday and continue being in area till at the very least Aug. 17. If COVID-19 metrics do no improve, the upcoming action could be a mask mandate for the standard community.

While Lohff recommended that everyone —  irrespective of whether they’re vaccinated or not — should be necessary to don masks, commissioners moved only to require workers to put on them indoors.
