RENO (AP) — Washoe County will be Nevada's only county that won't assume full local control of COVID-19 restrictions on Saturday.
But the district health officer said Thursday many Reno-Sparks businesses would be allowed to operate at full capacity as early as next week under a pending revised plan if they have enough space to still comply with the 6-foot distance requirement.
Kevin Dick expects the county commission to approve the revised plan Monday with state approval to follow quickly.
A state task force has approved plans for all other counties.
In Las Vegas, capacity limits will increase Saturday to 80% and social distancing will be reduced to 3 feet.
