LAS VEGAS (KLAS)– On Tuesday, Nov. 30, Governor Steve Sisolak signed an Emergency Directive, which allows event operators at large gatherings to admit attendees under the age of 12, regardless of vaccination status.

Nevadas aged 11 and under recently became authorized to receive the Pfizer vaccine.

Attendees who are aged 11 and under are not required to be vaccinated for large events and large conventions where attendance is 4,000 or greater.

However, masks are still required for the 11 and under age group, if they are unvaccinated.

Children under 12 who provide proof of full vaccination are not required to wear a mask during the event or convention.
