LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Unlike Easter 2020, parishioners will be in the pews for Easter services in 2021 as COVID-19 transmission rates plateau below World Health Organization recommendations in Nevada.

The Centers for Disease Control has continued to urge people to resume practicing safety measures to avoid the virus's spread.

According to CDC guidance, vaccinated people can gather together without masks, but everyone should wear masks if any individual in the group has not been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.
