Your Las Vegas COVID-19 Travel Guide

As Las Vegas continues to move forward, here are some helpful tips to keep you safe and well on your Las Vegas vacation. 

Travel to America

Make sure to check the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) website for any updates in travel requirements and restrictions. Currently, all international travel to the United States requires proof of full vaccination. If you are traveling from outside of the United States, you will also be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test no more than one day prior to boarding your flight.

Las Vegas Requirements

Las Vegas lifted the indoor mask mandate as of last week; however, private businesses still have the option to ask visitors to wear masks, so make sure to have a couple handy just in case. At this time, proof of vaccination or recent negative test results are not required for entry to businesses but may be required for large entertainment and sporting events based on venue rules. Regarding isolation and quarantine, the CDC recently updated its guidelines on December 27, 2021,  shortening the recommended isolation period from ten to five days if asymptomatic. Masks are still advised for the remaining five days to minimize the risk of passing along the infection to others.
