Nevada’s coronavirus task force voted Thursday to allow some restaurants in the Las Vegas area to reopen next week as Covid-19 numbers decline.
Beginning next Wednesday, Clark County restaurants with countertop services, including diners and sushi restaurants, will be able to reopen with social distancing. Bars and taverns that don’t serve food must remain closed.
Despite a substantial drop in new daily cases statewide over the last month, “We have a long way to go considering the fact that we started out so high,” Gov. Steve Sisolak said in a Thursday briefing.
Clark County has a test positivity rate above 10%, as does neighboring Nye County.
Sisolak warned Nevadans not to be complacent over the Labor Day holiday weekend.
“Please, celebrate with your immediate family,” the governor said. “Have a cookout in your backyard, watch some TV, whatever it might be. But please do not have large gatherings.”
