WYNN LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Gaming Control Board allowed the resort and its sister property Encore Las Vegas to expand to 100 percent capacity on Monday after the resort reported vaccinating 88 percent of its employees. The plexiglass barriers on the casino floor came down. The resort will continue to observe mask, health, and safety guidelines, and staff who have not been vaccinated with continue to take weekly COVID-19 tests. [LVRJ]

NEVADA — The state updated its mandatory mask policy to reflect new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Now fully vaccinated Nevadans do not need to wear a mask outdoors. The CDC updated Its guidance on April 27, allowing vaccinated people to go without a mask under certain outdoor conditions, although the agency does recommend wearing a mask at crowed outdoor concerts and sporting events. Unvaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask at small outdoor gatherings with fully vaccinated people. The governor’s updated directive notes that people still need to wear a mask indoors. Per the CDC, a fully vaccinated person received their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two weeks ago. [LVRJ]
