As of May 13, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) determined that individuals who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can resume activities you did prior to the pandemic without wearing a mask or staying six feet apart, except where required by local laws or local businesses. You will also likely be required to wear a mask in health care settings, on planes, and in public transportation settings, regardless of your vaccination status. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or two weeks after a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine.
It has never been easier for Southern Nevadans to get vaccinated. Schedule your COVID-19 vaccination appointment today through the Southern Nevada Health District.
Those who are not fully vaccinated should continue to take the following steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick and keep six feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household whenever possible.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others outside of your home.
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. (The World Health Organization has a good guide for thorough hand washing.)
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
I am working hard in Washington, D.C. to help get our economy back on track and ensure that every level of government has the resources needed to keep the public safe. The American Rescue Plan is helping Southern Nevada by putting shots in arms, money in pockets, workers in jobs, and children safely back in school.
The people who work so hard to make our city what it is have been struggling throughout this pandemic. I will do everything in my power to help them. Las Vegas is a resilient city. We’ve proven that before and soon we will prove it once again.
