Fifty is still a crowd — at least for now.

Gov. Steve Sisolak has issued an executive order that extends previous directives set to expire Friday, the last day of July. The new directive continues restricting gatherings to no more than 50 people and limiting business occupancy to 50 percent of fire code capacity.

Bars, pubs and taverns in certain counties with elevated COVID-19 transmission risk — Clark, Washoe, Elko and Nye — also must remain closed until further notice.

Additionally, the directive allows public bodies to continue conducting their business in alternative ways, such as virtual meetings. 

The governor did not indicate a timeline for loosening any of the restrictions, but next week the state will debut a “long-term mitigation strategy” with updated criteria based on long-term trends.
