Nevada has rolled back COVID-19 restrictions to allow the return of large meetings and conventions to The Strip.
But they’ll look much different to seasoned convention-goers.
On Tuesday, Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak announced get-togethers of up to 250 people — as well as many live entertainment events, trade shows, concerts and conventions — can resume under strict rules.
Here’s a look at what the directive means for attendees and events planners:
A 250 limit – unless plan is submitted for 1,000
Nevada venues will now be able to host conventions, conferences and trade shows with a capacity of 250, but that limit does not include employees, organizers and performers.
Venues can have events with 1,000 guests if these requirements are met:
- The venue can separate the event’s guests into separate rooms that hold no more than 250 people or 50 percent capacity, whichever is less.
- Venue employees and staff must be restricted to working no more than one area during the event.
- Each area must have floor to ceiling walls.
- Each area should have separate entrances and exits to avoid spaces being shared.
- All guest must be pre-registered.
- Shared use of restroom facilities, concessions, merchandizing and amenities should be minimized to avoid use by guests in other groups.
- Submit a “Large Gathering Venue COVID-19 Preparedness & Safety Plan” to local health authorities for review and confirmation that the plan meets standards.
Convention guests will have to follow other COVID-19 regulations already in place across Nevada, such as wearing face mask, keeping six feet apart and undergoing temperature checks.
