Where Are Masks Required in Las Vegas Right Now?

One of the most common questions asked by visitors throughout the pandemic is “Are masks required in Las Vegas?”. Making things more confusing, the answer has changed frequently over time as conditions have evolved.

As people are traveling to Las Vegas from around the country, and the world, I thought it would be helpful to put together a detailed breakdown of where masks are currently required.

I’ll be sure to keep this breakdown updated as conditions change (hopefully for the better).

Are Masks Required Indoors in Las Vegas?

No. Governor Steve Sisolak suspended the indoor mask mandate in Nevada on February, 10th, 2022 citing a sharp decline in cases.

The Governor pointed out that individual businesses can still make the decision to require face masks if they desire.

Although businesses have the option to impose their own restrictions, no casinos in Las Vegas are currently requiring masks indoors.

Are Masks Required at Events and Shows in Las Vegas?

No. Masks are no longer required at events in Las Vegas following the suspension of the indoor mask mandate in February 2022.

Mask Requirements on Public Transportation

No. Masks are currently required when riding the bus in Las Vegas.

As of April 18th, 2022, masks are optional for those taking Uber/Lyft.

Are Masks Required at the Airport & on Airplanes

No. Following an April 18th court ruling overturning the federal mandate, masks are no longer required at Harry Reid International airport or on airplanes.

Are Masks Required at the Pool in Las Vegas? Or Outdoors at all?

No. Masks are not required outdoors, although businesses have the option to adopt stricter policies when deemed necessary.

Status of COVID in Clark County

Clark County has experienced a sharp decline in Covid-19 cases, test positivity rate, and hospitalizations over the past several weeks.

For up-to-date reporting on pandemic figures in Nevada, we suggest checking out this dashboard put together by the Nevada Independent.

Hopefully, we were able to clear up where masks are currently required in Las Vegas. As the Omicron wave subsides, and vaccinations pick up, we’re hopeful Las Vegas stays maskless for the foreseeable future.

We just came back from Las Vegas. We have no problem wearing masks out of respect of other folks. The comments below saying the mask mandate is ruining Vegas and no one is there are 100% wrong. The city is crowed and packed. Hotels are full. We were surprised how crowded everything is. Since we respect others and don't want to get others sick, we wear our masks as required and enjoyed our time there. We just avoided losers who refused to wear masks and respect others and think of no one but their sad little selfs. But we were surprised at the lack of enforcement at Paris Las Vegas on the casino floor and the number of idiots who just don't give a damn about others or respect anyone but their own selfish self. Signs are posted all over, but it didn't seem to make things any better. Restaurants (to enter and leave) and the airport was much better and if someone even had their mask down, airport security was on them quick.

Visit, but do not gamble, and it would be changed overnight.

Remember your wonderful governor and how he killed the tourism industry in LV during the next election, Nevada.
