NGCB: COVID-19 Mitigation Protocols Update

 

Effective 12:00am on Tuesday, June 1, 2021, the Board rescinds all applicable COVID-19 mitigation protocols issued pursuant to section 18 of Emergency Directive 044, including, without limitation, Industry Notice #2021-41 and the Board’s “Health and Safety Policy for Continued Mitigation of the Spread of COVID-19 for Nonrestricted Licensees.”

Except as otherwise provided below and subject to NRS 447.300 to 447.355, inclusive, each licensee shall comply with its respective county’s general capacity and occupancy limitations and social distancing requirements, as detailed in the county’s Local Plan, within the licensee’s gaming areas. As of June 1, 2021, none of Nevada’s counties will retain social distancing or occupancy limitations that would apply to a gaming licensee. If the status of the spread of COVID-19 changes in such a way that a county amends its Local Plan, the Board expects each licensee to fully comply with such changes.

At this time, the Board is no longer approving formal requests submitted pursuant to Industry Notices #2021-41 to increase capacity on the gaming floor prior to June 1, 2021.

The Board expects each licensee to fully comply with the provisions of Emergency Directive 045, as well as the provisions of NRS 447.300 to 447.355, as amended.

In conjunction with state and local health officials, the Board will continue to ensure that best practices are used in the mitigation of COVID-19, and its effect on licensee operations, and will issue further notices as appropriate.
