Finally! GREAT News! No More Masks in Nevada! (For the Vaccinated)
Many weeks after neighboring states Utah and Arizona had already lifted ridiculous mask mandates, the state of Nevada is adopting the CDC's new mask guidance. This means that "fully vaccinated" people in Nevada are no longer required to wear a mask in most indoor or outdoor locations. But does this mean that Big Brother has already scanned and catalogued our eyes and the masks don't help them any more? Or does it mean they are just trying to point out those of us who don't want to get an unproven and sometimes fatal test jab to combat a flu?
This new guidance is effective immediately today, but expect it to take some time to reach businesses in our communities. Even though "fully vaccinated" people are not required to wear face masks or even more useless face coverings, businesses and venues can still require it. The State of Nevada neither requires nor prohibits private entities from confirming the vaccination status of individuals. I'd love to hear from you what you are seeing out there in our fine town of Enterprise!
Here is the test of the official press release from Nevada Health Response:
Nevada Adopts Updated CDC Mask Guidance
Carson City, Nev. — On May 13, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) issued updated guidance that fully-vaccinated
individuals do not need to wear a mask in most indoor and outdoor
On May 3, 2021, Governor Steve Sisolak signed Emergency Directive 045,
which updated the mask and face covering requirements for the State of
Nevada to align with the CDC’s recommendations on mask usage, including
any subsequent guidance issued by the CDC. As a result, the updated
guidance on masks issued today by the CDC is effective immediately in
Below are updates for the State of Nevada related to the updated CDC
• The State of Nevada neither requires nor prohibits private entities
from confirming vaccination status of individuals. Employers and
organizations are encouraged to post signage with the latest CDC
mask guidance for vaccinated and unvaccinated guests.
• Private entities and organizations may have mask policies that are
more restrictive than the CDC guidance. Workers should consult with
their employers regarding workplace COVID-19 safety protocols.
• In general, people are considered fully vaccinated: 2 weeks after
their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna
vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson &
Johnson’s Janssen vaccine. If you don’t meet these requirements,
regardless of your age, you are NOT fully vaccinated. Keep taking all
precautions until you are fully vaccinated.
• If you have a condition or are taking medications that weaken your
immune system, you may NOT be fully protected even if you are fully
vaccinated. Talk to your health care provider. Even after
vaccination, you may need to continue taking all precautions.
• The CDC guidance issued today also provided updates on social
distancing recommendations for fully vaccinated individuals. After the
May 1 transition to local authority, each county has the authority to
establish social distancing requirements. Nevada residents should
consult their county’s local mitigation plan for more information on
social distancing guidelines in their county. Click here for the latest
Please review the full CDC guidance for information regarding when a mask
may still be needed.
COVID-19 is still very much a threat in our State and many Nevadans may
choose to continue using masks based on their and their families’ personal
health concerns. Others should respect this choice.
Nevadans are encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Go to
NVCOVIDFighter.org or call 1-800-401-0946 for the latest information on
appointment and walk in availability. Nevadans 12 years of age and older
are now eligible to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
