Nevada Adopts Updated CDC Mask Guidance

Updated 05/13/2021

Starting May 13th, Nevada announced its alignment with the CDC’s recommendations on mask usage, including any subsequent guidance issued by the CDC. As a result, the State of Nevada no longer requires or prohibits private entities from confirming vaccination status of individuals. Employers and organizations are encouraged to post signage with the latest CDC mask guidance for vaccinated and unvaccinated guests.

In general, people are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine. If you don’t meet these requirements, regardless of your age. you are NOT fully vaccinated. keep taking all mask wearing and social distancing requirements until you are fully vaccinated.

Click here to see the full CDC guidance for information regarding when a mask may still be needed.

Get the Lowdown on Nevada COVID Restrictions By County

While the State of Nevada as embraced CDC recommendations not requiring fully vaccinated individuals to wear masks indoors or outdoors, mask restrictions may vary by business and county. For example, each county has the authority to establish their own social distancing requirements. Don’t see updated restrictions about where you’re headed? Be sure to call ahead! Please make sure you know what’s required (and what isn’t) before you hit the road.

The oldest living organisms on Earth lying patiently in the shadow of Wheeler Peak and the glacier. These freakin trees are older than Jesus guys. Also the trail through this forest was full of so many loose rocks I swear I nearly twisted my ankles a dozen times. Be safe out in the middle of nowhere guys. I also love this first photo because you can see the Great Basin desert stretch off into the distance at roughly ~6,000ft less elevation in a dozen miles.

It's time to apply for tickets to tour this gorgeous freak. Fly Geyser, not far from the putty-colored playa known as Black Rock Desert, is a technicolor blend of iron (red), sulfate (yellow), and algae (yup, the green crud) on private property in northern Nevada. It was born in 1964 when the drill from a geothermal company accidentally exposed it. After 55 years, it's getting a little taller and a touch lovelier by the year.

When you're feeling a little weird, you roadtrip to explore Nevada and gotta see Area 51👽
#fbf for this postcard-worthy day at redrockcanyonlv. This was just after I sliced my ankle to pieces on the cog and FaceTimed nurse_catchit instead of going to the doctor. #oops I now have a gnarly scar to always remember this trip by. There’s never a bad day in this park, and I’ll be back in September. Hopefully with less injuries and a few climbing ropes this time. (Cough cough benjisaurus.) #redrockcanyon #vegasbaby #outdoorvegas #ventureready #nevada #adventure #cycling
