LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - It wasn't really a surprise, but it was disappointing nevertheless.

The Nevada COVID-19 Task Force on Thursday voted to keep bars and taverns in Clark County closed.

One thing that changed was the task force’s move to allow bars in both Nye and Washoe counties to reopen. Most Nye County bars were allowed to reopen last week, with the exception of Pahrump. Thursday, Pahrump drinking establishments were also given the ok.

Task Force member who voted against bars reopening in Clark County cited the county's ongoing elevated coronavirus case and positivity rate, though number as of late have been moving in a positive direction.

The matter will be taken up again next week.
