The Clark County Government Center and other County facilities will begin to reopen to the public on June 1 with comprehensive enhanced health and safety measures in place in keeping with Gov. Steve Sisolak’s “Nevada United: Roadmap to Recovery” reopening plan.

Residents are encouraged to conduct business with the County online as much as possible but anyone needing to visit County facilities will:

• Find that line queues have changed with direction being given for spacing, and some lines, such as those at the Regional Justice Center, may take longer to get through. Building and line entrances and exits may have changed to discourage cross-traffic between customers. There also may be fewer public work stations and some seating has been taken out of use to encourage social distancing.

• Be asked to wear face coverings and in some cases such materials will be made available for customer use while supplies last. County employees interacting with the public also are being encouraged to wear face coverings and gloves as appropriate.

• Encounter plexiglass barriers at customers counters and some counter space will not be available for public use to comply with social distancing recommendations.

• Much more signage regarding health and safety as well as how to best access government services in light of the current situation.

• Notice an increased emphasis on cleaning and sanitation.

Clark County’s Las Vegas-area community and recreation centers also will open in a limited capacity on June 1, for open recreation and to register for upcoming programs.

County senior centers will not yet be open. The County’s aquatic facilities are expected to open later in June at a reduced capacity. The date will be announced later. Playgrounds will continue to remain closed. Splash pads will also open on June 1. Dog parks and equestrian arenas are already open for public use.

The Clark County Wetlands Park Nature Center, Clark County Museum, and the Clark County Shooting Complex will remain closed until further notice.
