LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Most Clark County offices will be closed starting Friday, but office hours have expanded Monday through Thursday to 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.). This change is in response to the economic impact COVID-19 has had on the local economy.

Compressing most County operations from five days per week to four days a week aligns with those of the cities of Las Vegas, Henderson & North Las Vegas.

Examples of the County offices with these new hours are the Assessor, Recorder, Treasurer, Development Services, Comprehensive Planning, Las Vegas Justice Court and the Las Vegas Constable’s Office.

Initial Appearance Court will continue to operate seven days a week. Some County functions continue to operate five days a week and even through the weekend, such as Family Services, Juvenile Justice Services, Animal Control, code enforcement, and building inspections.

Community and senior center are open Monday through Fridays and in some cases Saturday but hours vary. The Clark County Shooting Complex is open seven days a week. The Clark County Wetlands Park trails are open seven days a week, though the Nature Center Auditorium is open Tuesday through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Anyone interested in their hours may visit www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/parks or call the Parks and Recreation main phone number at (702) 455-8200. Questions about the hours of any County office may visit the main website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov or call (702) 455-0000.

Anyone headed to a County community center, permit office or any other County building is reminded to wear a face covering and practice social distancing in order to comply with the governor's directive aimed at limiting the spread of the coronavirus.

An appropriate face covering fully covers a person's nose and mouth, and could be a homemade cloth covering, scarf, bandana, or surgical mask. Visitors to County buildings who do not have a face covering may be asked to leave.

Like the general public, County employees are required to wear face coverings whenever they are in public areas in County buildings including in lobbies, elevators, breakrooms, and meeting rooms.

There are some limited exemptions to the face covering mandate, such as for those having a medical condition that affects their ability to wear a face covering. For more information about the mandate and other coronavirus topics, visit www.nvhealthresponse.nv.gov. Wearing a face covering is believed to be one of the most effective ways people can limit the spread of the coronavirus, largely because it makes it more difficult for someone who has the virus to transmit it to another person. This is especially beneficial in situations where infected persons are asymptomatic and do not know they should be quarantined
