Nevada Federal Court Resuming In-Person Hearings; Face Coverings Encouraged

On Monday, May 18, the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada announced that the court is incrementally resuming in-person hearings in a phased approach. The court is using recommended health guidelines to do so, including guidelines that recommend wearing face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19 where social distancing measures are hard to maintain.

Effective May 18, members of the public are encouraged, but not required, to wear face coverings when they come to the courthouses. In addition, face coverings are required during court proceedings to the extent possible.
