LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — For the first time in almost 450 days, South Nevada has no government-mandated rules. This means that in most cases there is no mask or social distance.
Clark County’s coronavirus restriction has officially expired at midnight. This means that there is no need for capacity caps, social distances or masks unless individual companies choose to continue this practice.
A big celebration was celebrated on Fremont Street with a video message from Mayor Carolyn Goodman and a special display on the Viva Vision Canopy showing a countdown clock to full resumption.
“That’s great. The American summer after the pandemic. Everyone, including businesses, deserves to go out,” said David Charles, who is visiting from California.
With the message “Downtown Rocks Again”, the live band stood on stage in front of the video board for the first time in over a year.
Local performer Zoe Bowie rocked the crowd.
Most visitors were ready for the party, but some want certain restrictions.
“I don’t think there’s a big difference here, usually considering how packed it is, so I think I’ll implement someone who is still wearing a mask. That’s the biggest thing.” Said Endy Pineda, who came from California.
Individual businesses can ask people to wear masks and secure social distance as needed. However, almost all businesses on East Fremont Street and the Las Vegas Strip have chosen to remove these requirements.
All lifting of restrictions depends on whether the number of COVID-19 remains low. In the event of a spike, the Governor or Clark County can intervene to revive the emergency order.
