Businesses in unincorporated Clark County still seem to have an issue mandating that employees and staff must wear masks or facial coverings.

On June 26, Gov. Steve Sisolak mandated that everyone must wear a mask indoors at businesses and outdoors when six feet of social distancing is not possible to curb the spread of COVID-19. Clark County officials, who oversee many casinos on the Strip, visited more than 1,600 businesses since then. Only 38 businesses were found in violation of the mask order and authorities issued notices meant to educate the staff on how to properly follow the directive.

Business license officials issued violations to casinos such as Aria, Mandalay Bay, the Silverton, and the nongaming Tahiti Village Vacation Club. At Aria, customers at the pool were not wearing a mask and were not social distancing on July 3. Mandalay Bay also failed to enforce social distancing at the pool on July 3. At the Silverton, customers did not social distance at the mermaid show on July 2. At Tahiti Village Vacation Club, customers and employees did not wear a mask properly on July 9.

Restaurants did not fare much better. At 808 Sushi at 7435 S. Durango Road, staff did not wear a face mask when business license officials visited on July 3. The same goes at China A Go Go III at 7435 S. Durango Road on the same day.

Employees at Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop at 7291 S. Eastern Ave. were not wearing a mask when officials visited on July 6. Neither were employees at Chicken Now at 7400 Las Vegas Blvd S. and Sbarro at 7400 Las Vegas Blvd S. on the same day.

At Stephanos Greek & Mediterranean Grill at 6155 S. Fort Apache Road, employees were not wearing a facial covering properly and a soda dispenser was still in service.

At the Venetian’s Grand Canal Shoppes, Cocolini was selling ice cream without a business permit. The Minus5 Experience hosted customers who were not wearing a mask on July 8, while the Subway store at the resort also had customers who were not wearing masks.
