I want to thank Jim for posting a link to the proposal Clark County has drawn up for easing the Covid restrictions that will go into place on May 1, 2021. I’ll outline the specific language that applies to strip clubs below. To read the entire 36-page proposal, click here.
On May 1, strip clubs will be allowed to increase their occupancy level from 50% to 80% capacity. Social distancing within the clubs will go from 6 feet to 3 feet. Dancers will also be allowed to perform at only 3 feet distance from customers. Dancers can be less than 3 feet if they have vaccine proof or they can show a negative result of a Covid test (repeated weekly if not vaccinated).
Does “less than 3 feet” mean lap dances will return? I don’t see any language relating to physical contact, so . . .
Note that the May 1 loosening of restrictions hinges on the numbers of Covid cases/deaths staying low. The proposal does state that “factors such as increased viral spread, the unknown nature of various variants, and otherwise could result in increased baseline mitigation measures, or the State resuming control of some or all mitigation measures.” So, we’re not out of the woods yet.
I’ll keep you posted on any new info as it comes in.
