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 accessible educational information, aid in some of the costs associated with receiving COVID-19 testing at various points of entry.

    Nevada does not have a social distancing requirement in place, however, maintaining six feet between yourself and others is strongly encouraged. Along with no social distancing requirements, each of Nevada’s 17 counties are open at 100% capacity. You can learn about the current social distancing, mask requirements, provisions, and recommendations designated by each county at travelnevada.com/covid-19/.

    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

      A recent directive given by Nevada’s Governor, Steve Sisolak, states, “Masks will no longer be required in public spaces, but there are locations where Nevadans and visitors may still be asked to wear a mask.”  These locations include facilities serving vulnerable populations (hospitals, clinics, and long-term health care facilities.  

        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. Refer to Your Guide to Masks to make the best choice for you.

          The Centers for Disease and Control guidance continues to recommend people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings at this time.  See this link for more information. Additional information on the recommendations of the CDC can be found on the CDC website or on the TSA website.
