Officials said residents should avoid states like Nevada and other states where COVID-19 case rates are high.
- Other mentioned states included Arkansas, Missouri, Louisiana and Nevada, per The New York Times.
The warning came as Los Angeles County — the country’s largest county — announced Thursday it would add a requirement for people to wear face masks indoors again, even when they’re fully vaccinated, per KTLA.
But Lori Nelson-Kraft, spokeswoman for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, said in a statement to the Las Vegas Review-Journal that people should still feel comfortable visiting Las Vegas.
- “We continue to encourage visitors and locals alike to get vaccinated,” Nelson-Kraft said. “Visitors to Las Vegas should feel confident that we are making every effort to ensure their safety in our destination.”
