Carson City has prepared a transition plan for reopening in a safe and monitored way throughout 2021 which includes stipulations for schools, indoor and outdoor events, casinos, and more.
The plan is as follows:
Over the next several months and following the transition to local government, the City will continue to monitor the State’s County Tracker to ensure the City stays within acceptable ranges. Testing and contact tracing efforts will continue. In addition, the City will monitor hospital capacity.
Long term facilities and group homes are performing their own testing; however, Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) will continue to investigate positive cases. Carson City Jail and Juvenile Detention have protocols in place and CCHHS will continue to assist, if needed, and will investigate positive cases.
CCHHS will continue to partner with Friends in Service Helping (FISH) to assist any homeless individuals who test positive to find a place to quarantine. CCHHS will continue to work closely with Carson City School District and private schools regarding positive cases and will provide assistance as needed.
The City has procured a surplus of PPE and sanitation supplies both for City Departments and local businesses free of charge. The City will coordinate with the Nevada Division of Emergency Management to obtain additional supplies from their surplus. With receipt of the new American Rescue Plan funding, the City will continue to purchase PPE and sanitation supplies for distribution, if needed.
Following the May 1st transition, Carson City will work towards re-opening up to 100 percent provided social distancing requirements can be met. The City has prepared an occupancy and requirements matrix for industries and activities.
All businesses and events will be required to follow the Governor’s directives which remain in place regarding
