State Directive 045 follows Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance.
The Nevada Child Care Licensing Unit has been receiving inquiries regarding mask-wearing in child cares/preschools. Facilities are being advised to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines as set forth regarding Child Care, which indicate that wearing masks should continue within facilities.
Gov. Steve Sisolak has issued Directive 45, which aligns Nevada’s mask and face covering requirements with the CDC. The directive and Directive 045 Guidance can be viewed here on the Nevada Health Response website.
Guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Nevada Regulations have been integrated to help child care providers reduce the risk of coronavirus spread within their facilities. The Nevada Child Care Licensing unit is providing documents, linked below, to show providers how CDC recommendations pair with state-level requirements. Facilities are encouraged to utilize the attached Operating Checklist and reference guide while continuing to operate during this time of important vigilance. Child care facilities should use the Operating Checklist to help prepare for inspections, as surveyors will be completing this checklist as part of each on-site inspection.
