LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Several businesses are opening to the public Saturday, as Nevada begins its Phase 1 reopening plan from Gov. Steve Sisolak.
Business owners and residents have told 13 Action News that they are excited about the reopening plan starting, but certain things are still going to look a bit different than the way it was before the pandemic.
Customers can dine-in at restaurants, but will have to wait outside for a seat to open. The staff has to wear face masks, and restaurants can only operate at half capacity.
As we begin to reopen in Nevada, it’s important to still take precautions against #COVID19. @NVHealthRespon1 has guidance posted for individuals and businesses. Learn more here: https://t.co/agQBEBfOSW

Retail locations can also open at half capacity, but Gov. Sisolak urged people to continue curbside pick up options as well.
Cannabis retailers can start indoor sales if they have a plan approved by the Marijuana Enforcement Division. And nail salons, hair salons, and barbershops can open.
However, businesses that will not be able to reopen during Phase 1, according to the governor, include:
-Nightclubs & taverns that aren't currently open and don't have a license to serve food
-Gyms and fitness facilities, including yoga and spin facilities
-Strip clubs and brothels
-Spas, tanning salons, massage parlors, body art & body piercing establishments
-Entertainment & recreational venues such as bowling alleys, movie theaters (except drive-ins), sporting event venues, arcades, & recreational and community centers
Gov. Sisolak says he expects Phase 1 to last 2-3 weeks.
