Nightclubs and grownup leisure allowed to reopen in Washoe County

RENO, Nevada (KOLO) – Adult nightclubs and entertainment venues scheduled to open June 1 under COVID-19 rules are now open after the Washoe County Board of Commissioners took action on Tuesday.

They can be reopened if they adhere to all applicable social distancing, hygiene, and performance rules set out in state policies and guidelines for COVID-19. Karaoke will also follow state rules.

Commission chairman Bob Lucey said the topless entertainment can open on Tuesday as long as the entertainers maintain social distance. You received your first dose of vaccine within the last 14 days. NS must be given the second dose within six weeks or have weekly COVID-19 tests.

Lucey asked that these businesses be treated in the same way as bars and restaurants.

Commissioner Vaughn Hartung said reopening these stores is not as easy as flipping a switch. A casino operator told him he couldn’t get large amounts of alcohol right away if he tried to open a club.

“It will take some time,” said Hartung.

Commissioner Kitty Jung said the opportunity to reopen the businesses earlier will level the playing field for similar businesses in Clark County.
