Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak announced Sunday afternoon, November 22, 2020 that he’s requiring Las Vegas restaurants and bars to go from 50 to 25 percent of capacity, both indoors and out, in what he called a “statewide pause” of at least three weeks.

               The new restrictions, which will take effect at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, November 24, 2020, are in response to what he cited as a “massive increase in community spread.” Sisolak said a Nevadan is diagnosed with COVID-19 every minute.
               Capacity limits must be posted and tables are to be limited to no more than four people each. Businesses that serve food are required to be reservation-only. Bar and counter seating must be socially distanced. Masks are required both indoors and out, even if 6-feet of social distancing is in effect. Mask must also be worn whenever a person is not actively eating or drinking, if he or she is with someone who’s not part of their own household. The same restrictions apply to restaurants within the Las Vegas Resorts.
              The governor said local Las Vegas residents and visitors are encouraged to patronize restaurants through curbside pickup, takeout and/or delivery.
said if the state doesn’t experience an improvement in the trends in the next three weeks, further restrictions will be announced, but he mentioned that there’s light at the end of the tunnel. “We’re closer to the end than we are the beginning,” he said, when referencing the coming vaccines
