LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Following Gov. Steve Sisolak's announcement lifting the mask mandate in Nevada, the Clark County School District says masks will no longer be required at its schools after today.

On school buses, however, masks are still required.

All other COVID-19 mitigation measures remain in effect, the district says.

During a press conference on Thursday, Sisolak left the decision to require masks up to the individual school districts in the state. You can watch the full announcement here.

Read the full statement from CCSD below.

The Clark County School District welcomes Governor Sisolak’s updated directive to end the statewide mask mandate for Nevada.

Beginning at the end of the school day today, February 10, 2022, masks will no longer be required on CCSD campuses, schools, or facilities but will remain required on school buses. Because COVID-19 continues, students and employees of CCSD can make the individual choice to continue masking.

At this time, all other COVID-19 mitigation measures remain in effect.

The Clark County Education Association, the largest teachers union in the state, released a statement saying that it supports the governor's decision to end the mask mandate but went on to say it "encourages all staff, parents and students to make the best individual choice for them and their family on whether they continue to wear a mask at this time."
