LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Live performances are starting to return to the Las Vegas scene but before the acts can take the stage there are a few updated pandemic guidelines in place.

Delirious Stand-Up Comedy Club enjoyed its opening night on Thursday with a few new changes from the room location to the setup.

The additions to the show are in compliance with the updated state guidelines announced earlier on Thursday during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Vocal performers, including singers, magicians and comedians currently have the ability to remove face coverings during any performance when a face covering cannot be worn due to the nature of the performance - as long as social distancing is always maintained.

Previously, performers could only remove them during performances in certain spaces.

The relaxed guidelines come as Nevada health officials recently flagged Clark County for an elevated coronavirus transmission risk for a second time.

And local doctors say they are worried about an increase in cases in the following weeks if many locals and visitors start to let their guard down.

Health experts say they do support reopenings but it is important for everyone to remain vigilant as the pandemic continues.
