Traveler's Health Nevada

What is Traveler’s Health and What Does it Mean?

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic travelers typically monitored their own health and if they were too ill to travel, they wouldn't — or at least shouldn’t. Now, the overall health of travelers is an important conversation, especially in Nevada where much of the economy is based on tourism.

    The State of Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public and Behavioral Health has been granted funds from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to assist Nevada travelers with accessing educational information for COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. These grant funds also allow for aid for Nevada travelers to obtain a COVID-19 test should they need or desire.

    If you are utilizing a vacation rental such as Airbnb or VRBO while in Nevada, please thoroughly research the policy of each property host as the results vary from host to host. It is recommended that you familiarize yourself with the vacation rental company’s COVID-19 policies.

      Nevada’s COVID-19 Restrictions

        The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends all persons in counties with a substantial or high transmission rate, whether vaccinated or not, continue to wear a mask while in public places. Your Guide to Masks is a great tool to aid in your decision.

          As a result of a court order, effective immediately and as of April 18, 2022, CDC's January 29, 2021 Order requiring masks on public transportation conveyances and at transportation hubs is no longer in effect. Therefore, the CDC will not enforce the Order. CDC Continues to recommend that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings at this time.
