Nye County Guidance on Updated CDC Guidelines on Face Masks

Per the recently revised CDC guidelines, all members of the public entering town and county buildings are required to wear face masks except the following:
 
Members of the Public Claiming Medical Exemptions

Members of the public claiming a medical exemption are not required to wear a face mask but are still required to wear a face shield. Those unable or unwilling to wear either a face mask or a face shield may participate in the meeting remotely. We will not be asking for details about or requiring proof of medical conditions.

Vaccinated Members of the Public

Fully vaccinated members of the public may enter town or county buildings without a face mask or a face shield. We will not require proof of vaccination, e.g. ask to see anyone’s vaccination card.

Those who believe the guidelines above are inadequate to prevent disease transmission are free to continue to wear masks to protect themselves and others.
