Nye County votes to fully reopen and not enforce mask wearing May 1

The Nye County Commission voted on Tuesday night to reopen to 100% capacity and allow residents not to wear masks if they so choose on May 1. That's when the state of Nevada is scheduled to hand over the control of mitigation measures to local counties. However, Gov. Steve Sisolak has previously said that the mask mandate will remain in place. A spokesperson for the county tells 13 Action News the decision by the Board of County Commissioners and how it could be implemented is being reviewed by the Nye County District Attorney’s Office.
