The health and safety of all visitors to Las Vegas are paramount and the Las Vegas Visitors and Convention Authority (LVCVA) is committed to providing our visitors, community and industry partners with accurate and timely information about traveling to the destination, as well as to ensure that we continue to provide a safe environment for those who are visiting.
The LVCVA continues to work closely with state and local officials, public health officials, and partners in the hospitality industry to keep the city and its residents safe and healthy, as we know that many of those most significantly impacted include hospitality workers and businesses. While we work every day on the destination’s response to the virus, we are also preparing our industry for recovery.
Recently the LVCVA launched its citywide Vegas Smart campaign to encourage visitors to stay smart and stay healthy while enjoying the destination. For more information, as well as links to each resort partner’s healthy and safety plan, click here.
The Nevada COVID-19 Mitigation and Management Task Force created by Gov. Steve Sisolak has lifted previous restrictions on operations at bars, including those located in resorts, restaurants and casinos throughout Clark County. Bars, restaurants and casinos will still abide by the state’s 50% capacity limit.
Nevada’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has launched COVID Trace, a digital contact tracing app designed to slow the spread of COVID-19. The app uses Bluetooth technology to check phones in close proximity of those associated with positive COVID-19 cases to notify users of potential exposure. COVID Trace is voluntary, free and available for Nevadans and visitors to download on both iOS and Android phones.
While manual contact tracing remains a necessity, COVID Trace is an innovative solution to shorten the notification timeline. The app captures contacts that an exposed person may not remember or may not know personally and provides a potential exposure notification. COVID Trace uses the latest technology to maintain anonymity and user privacy.
COVID Trace is an valuable resource for both leisure and business travelers to Las Vegas. Visitors may download and use the app while in the destination. Upon their return home, they would be notified if they encountered a contact who subsequently tested positive for COVID-19.
