On the first official day of Phase 2, Gov. Steve Sisolak on Friday, May 29 adjusted a previous travel advisory for the state of Nevada effective immediately.
Nevada continues to strongly discourage those who have tested positive for COVID-19 and have not yet recovered, those who have been presumptively diagnosed with COVID-19 and those who are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms from traveling to the state at this time.
Additionally, Nevada recommends all travelers review Centers for Disease Control and Prevention travel guidelines, including restriction on travelers from certain foreign countries from entering the United States.
“Nevada is entering Phase 2 of reopening, and our gaming properties are on track to reopen as of June 4 as we gradually and cautiously return to a new normal while continuing to take strong mitigation measures against COVID-19,” Sisolak said. “Nevada is a premier travel destination and will always be a warm and welcoming spot for visitors.
“We have strong systems in place to help protect Nevadans and our visitors but continue to urge all those who have tested positive and not yet recovered or who are exhibiting symptoms to avoid travel to the state at this time. We look forward to welcoming back all of the tourists who love Nevada as much as we do in the safest and most responsible way possible.”
