COVID-19 Resources 



 As “retail stores,” cannabis retailers will be subject to local authority for capacity/mitigation starting on May 1, 2021.

Newly issued Directive 44 states that all counties will set their own mitigation measures, also beginning on May 1. The State Emergency Directive will no longer include social distancing and sanitation guidelines as of that date, though counties will have the authority to include social distancing measures in their mitigation plans.

See below for a list of plans by county.


Retail stores may have up to 80% capacity. Decrease social distancing from six feet to three feet. Remove all social distancing and capacity guidelines once 60% of population has received at least one vaccine dose. See pages 18-20 of revised plan.


Washoe County Commissioners are voting on a proposed plan as of April 20. For Retail Stores, the recommendation is that “if possible, maintain social distancing between customers. If not possible or causes a hardship to monitor, limit to 50% capacity.“ See page 13 of proposed plan.


All businesses can work towards re-opening up to 100 percent provided social distancing requirements can be met. Medicinal and Recreational Cannabis Establishments must operate according to the requirements of the CCB. Statewide mask mandate, social distancing and hygiene considerations remain in effect.


Immediately upon the May 1, 2021 transition, Douglas County will re-open to 100 percent of occupancy limits for all Douglas County business that are not subject to differing requirements imposed by a separate governing authority (i.e. gaming businesses).


Follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines in order to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
