Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - In an effort to limit the spread of the COVID-19 in conjunction with the pause ordered by Gov. Steve Sisolak, most Clark County buildings will be closed to the public beginning Tuesday

The County facilities that will remain open to the public at this time will be McCarran International Airport and University Medical Center of Southern Nevada. Courts will remain open for limited types of case proceedings. The County Marriage License Bureau will remain open. Clark County parks and recreation centers will operate at 25 percent building capacity. 

All tournaments at County facilities are cancelled until further notice to comply with the governor’s directive to limit crowd capacity. Reservations for all groups larger than 50 people are being cancelled at this time, and no group reservations at parks are being accepted.  Public meetings scheduled to be held at Clark County’s Government Center or other buildings will be cancelled or moved to virtual formats.

Even though most County buildings will be closed to the public for business, County employees will be available to communicate with residents by phone or email. Phone numbers and emails for various County departments can be found on Clark County’s website under department listings. County services that are available online will also continue to be accessible.

Also, outdoor park spaces and playground will remain open to the public. Visitors are urged to follow directives based on health guidance requiring face coverings to be worn at all times, whether indoors or outdoors, when around individuals outside their households. A summary of the new state restrictions in place starting tomorrow is on the Nevada Health Response website.
