This guidance, effective May 1, 2021, applies to all businesses currently authorized to operate in Nevada and includes updates from provisions of Declaration of Emergency Directive #044. This guidance supersedes previous guidance released on November 25, 2020. Declaration of Emergency Directives #044, along with #024 and #028, require businesses to comply with guidelines promulgated by the Nevada Occupational Safety and Health Administration (NV OSHA) to minimize the risk of spread of COVID‐19, including sanitation measures, and face coverings. Directive #044 also encourages employers to take proactive measures to implement social distancing guidelines promulgated by the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC). NV OSHA is also responsible for enforcing all violations of its guidelines, protocols, and regulations promulgated pursuant to the Governor’s Directives.
To support the continued efforts of the State of Nevada, NV OSHA is providing this guidance, and the requirements found within, for businesses authorized to operate under current Directives. The measures contained in the document are required of each business and should be applied to all employees of that business. As we battle the coronavirus pandemic, this guidance may continue to evolve.
