LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A group of Nevadans against wearing masks continued to protest Monday evening. This time, they did it outside of Gov. Steve Sisolak’s Las Vegas home.
Around 5:15, there were between 75 and 100 people present. Police are ready to act if things get out of hand.
Currently, you are required to wear a mask in Nevada if you are in a public place, due to COVID-19. This has been the rule for about three months now since the Governor signed the emergency directive in late June.
Tonight’s protest is the eighth local gathering of the “No Mask Nevada” political action committee. Since the beginning, the group has said forcing them to wear masks is infringing on their rights, and it’s unconstitutional.
They say the Governor is “trying to destroy the global symbol of American prosperity.”
But health experts agree wearing a mask is one of the best ways to protect yourself and others from contracting COVID-19.
