Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2020, Clark County government buildings will be closed to the public in compliance with Gov. Steve Sisolak's call for efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19. County services will continue to be available online and employees will respond to citizens by email, phone and other socially-distant methods. A full listing of County Departments is here.
County facilities that will remain open to the public include McCarran International Airport and University Medical Center of Southern Nevada. Courts will remain open for limited types of case proceedings. The County Marriage License Bureau will remain open. Clark County parks and recreation centers will operate at 25 percent building capacity. All tournaments at County facilities are cancelled until further notice to comply with the governor’s directive to limit crowd capacity. Reservations for all groups larger than 50 people are being cancelled at this time, and no group reservations at parks are being accepted. Public meetings scheduled to be held at Clark County’s Government Center or other buildings will be cancelled or moved to virtual formats.
