To Whom It May Concern:
Scope: Updated Guidance for Business Operations under the State of Nevada’s Declaration of Emergency and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Guidance
This guidance, effective May 14, 2021, applies to all businesses currently authorized to operate in Nevada and includes updates from provisions of Declaration of Emergency Directive #045 and new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued on May 13, 2021. This guidance supersedes previous guidance released on May 10, 2021.
Declaration of Emergency Directives #045, along with #024, #028 and #044, 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.
