Restrictions Lifted June 1
The Clark County local COVID-19 mitigation plan expired June 1, allowing for the return of pre-pandemic guidelines that lift restrictions involving capacity limits, large gatherings and more. Increasing vaccination rates, a low positivity rate and normal hospitalization rates all justify the lifting of restrictions. In the event that hospitalizations should rise, additional mitigation measures may be required for the protection of the community.
It remains important for people to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance on wearing masks. Masks still must be worn in hospitals and healthcare facilities and on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States, and in transportation hubs such as airports and stations. More guidance about masks is on the CDC’s website at https://www.cdc.gov/
In addition to CDC guidance, the public is encouraged to consult the following resources regarding health and safety regulations and COVID-19-related information:

Keeping The Homeless Safe
The city of Las Vegas is coordinating with Clark County and the Southern Nevada Health District to address health risks posed by the pandemic. Standard precautions already in place at the Courtyard Homeless Resource Center include frequent cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces, making hand-washing stations available and providing alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Anyone who needs help can visit lasvegasnevda.gov/homeless.
Is Our Water Safe?
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness, like the flu, which is spread person to person—there is no indication that transmission can occur via drinking water supplies.
Southern Nevada’s drinking water is treated using a combination of ozonation, filtration and chlorination, which are on the leading edge of water treatment processes and effective at removing contaminants from water. To ensure your water meets or surpasses drinking water standards, we also monitor water quality around the valley 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Is 5G Cell Phone Technology Linked To The Cause Of Coronavirus?
A worldwide online conspiracy theory has attempted to link 5G cell phone technology as being one of the causes of the coronavirus. Many cell towers outside of the U.S. have been set on fire as a result; 5G technology does NOT cause coronavirus.
I Got A Call, Text, Or Email Saying I Could Get Financial Help. Is It Legitimate?
There have been reports that scammers are pretending to be the government, contacting people by robocall, text message, email and other outreach. These scammers say they can get people financial help during the COVID-19 pandemic, and then ask for money or personal information, like your Social Security, bank account or credit card number. This is a SCAM.
Don’t trust anyone who offers financial help and then asks for money or personal information. Federal and local disaster workers do not solicit or accept money. The Department of Homeland Security, FEMA, U.S. Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control staff never charge for disaster assistance. The Federal Trade Commission scams page has tips to help you avoid scams online, on the phone, by text and through email. If you see a scam, please report it to the Federal Trade Commission: ftc.gov/complaint.
