All Nevada counties to require masks again amid omicron surge

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Every county in Nevada will require masks no matter one’s vaccination status due to high transmission of coronavirus through the state, officials said Tuesday.

The CDC recommends everyone, including fully vaccinated individuals, wear a mask in public indoor settings in counties with substantial or high transmission. All of Nevada’s counties fall under this category as of Wednesday.

Starting Friday, Eureka, Storey and White Pine counties will once again require masks.

Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak signed an emergency directive in May adopting the latest CDC guidance related to masks as a statewide requirement. Counties must drop to low or moderate transmission levels for two weeks in a row to drop masks. Clark County has never fallen below this level since May.

Nevada has had a mask mandate since April of 2020, except for a brief few months when it was lifted... Read More

How to order your free at-home COVID tests from the federal government

(NEXSTAR) - Americans are now able to request free at-home COVID-19 tests from the federal government as the country faces widespread shortages. Those shortages will also impact how many free tests you can request, with the White House limiting orders to just four free tests per home.

While it was initially reported that the website would not begin accepting orders until Wednesday, Jan. 19, the website, COVIDTests.gov, is now online and appears to be processing requests for tests. These tests are completely free to order, with tests expected to ship within 7 to 12 days.

Available tests are rapid antigen at-home tests, not PCR tests. All of the tests being shipped are FDA-authorized, but you will not be able to select which brand you receive. The tests give results within 30 minutes and can be used whether or not you have COVID-19 symptoms or are vaccinated. ... Read More
