Doing Business in Clark County

Welcome to the Department of Business License!
On November 22, 2020, Governor Sisolak announced further restrictions in an effort to slow the increase in COVID-19 cases.  The new measures, which will be effective Tuesday, November 24 include:
•             Reduction to 25% of fire code capacity at businesses (restaurants, bars, gaming operations, gyms etc.);
•             Limitation of 50 people or 25% capacity (whichever is less) at all public gatherings;
•             Retail stores – including grocery stores – will remain at 50 percent of capacity, with strict distancing and additional monitoring requirements;
•             Limitation of private gatherings to no more than 10 people from no more than two (2) separate households; 
•             Masks are to be worn at all times—both indoors and outdoors; and 
•             Stay home whenever possible.
Read the Governor's Declaration of Emergency Directive 35.

In response to these additional restrictions, Clark County will be limiting public access to the majority of our facilities beginning November 24 until further notice.
The Government Center and the Clark County Business License Department will be closed to the public during this time and no appointments will be taken

We will continue to monitor online applications and online renewals during this time.
