Nevada became the latest U.S. state to drop its indoor COVID-19 mask mandate Thursday, affecting resorts, casinos, restaurants, bars and showrooms, including in Las Vegas.

Effective Feb. 10, masks are no longer required indoors in Nevada for anyone (regardless of vaccination status), thanks to an updated order issued by Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak.
The mask update also applies to use in casinos (barring any local mandates currently in place), ripe for sports fans in Vegas ready to bet on the Super Bowl on Sunday.
It is unclear whether plexiglass at casino tables will remain in place, though the removal of the mask mandate seems to be the last COVID-19-related restriction to go.
Local authorities and private businesses still have the discretion to require masks for customers should they so choose.
Nevada joins a growing list of states throughout the country, from California to New Jersey, which announced the end of mask mandates this week as well.
“Las Vegas is open and ready to welcome you back to business, without restrictions involving capacity limits and large gatherings,” says the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
