LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Nevada ranks 27th in a new study by WalletHub that compared the 50 states and Washington, D.C., based on COVID-19 restrictions.
To identify which states have the fewest coronavirus restrictions, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 14 key metrics.
Their data ranges from whether restaurants are open to whether the state has required face masks in public and workplace temperature screenings.
Our neighboring state, Arizona, moved from 45 to 30, up 15 positions. Due in part to the fact that the state has reopened bars while maintaining some service limits and has loosened restrictions on workplace temperature screenings.
California on the other hand ranks at 51, the state with the most pandemic-related restrictions.
