Karaoke returns to Nevada and strip clubs may be able to reopen on May 1. The state gave karaoke bars and open mic events permission to return to business with 50 percent maximum occupancy and social distancing requirements.

New state guidance requires a barrier between the performance area and the audience. Singers can remove their face coverings as long as they remain 12 feet away from others. Karaoke and open-mic businesses must provide microphone covers that are replaced between performers. Those who are not actively singing, eating, or drinking must wear face masks.

Cat’s Meow, the karaoke bar inside Neonopolis on the Fremont Street Experience, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Nevada against the state last November, alleging that the state’s coronavirus pandemic orders to keep nightclubs closed are unconstitutional.

Nightclubs, dayclubs, brothels, and adult entertainment must remain closed for now, but strip clubs are working to reopen on May 1. FOX 5 reports that counties can allow strip clubs to reopen then. The state already indicated that if COVID-19 numbers continue to decline, counties will then have the authority to expand openings on May 1.

Some gentlemen’s clubs, including Palomino Club in North Las Vegas and Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club, turned into a lounge with partially clothed dancers during the pandemic in order to open.
