COVID-19 Updates from NDCNR

COVID-19 Updates from NDCNR

As always, the health and safety of all Nevada residents, visitors, and NDCNR employees are our top priority. In accordance with Governor Sisolak’s guidance to reopen all state buildings to in-person business, effective June 1, 2021, the Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (NDCNR) is open to public foot traffic during regular business hours – Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Appointments, online services, and tele-services should continue to be utilized whenever possible. 

Pursuant to Governor Sisolak's most recent Emergency Directive 052 Guidance, updated February 10, 2022, employees and visitors are not required to wear masks indoors at NDCNR’s places of business, regardless of vaccination status. 

Although walk-ups are welcome, NDCNR strongly recommends scheduling an appointment for in-person services to ensure the best possible customer service experience. 

  • When accessing NDCNR buildings for in-person services, members of the public must adhere to the following: 
  • Follow CDC health and hygiene guidelines, including washing hands for at least 20 seconds and using hand sanitizer after touching surfaces. 
  • Please do not request an in-person appointment if you are sick or experiencing symptoms. 
  • Please do not access NDCNR facilities if you are sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have had close contact with an individual who was diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last five days. 

NDCNR’s policies and procedures will continue to evolve as the CDC, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and Nevada Department of Administration learn more and provide updated guidance. 

Thank you for your continued understanding and support.
