We are sure you have seen the news by now that the State of Nevada is reimplementing masks, even for people who are fully vaccinated.

This update comes as the Delta variant now accounts for the majority of new cases. The Delta variant has shown to be much more contagious and spreads more than twice as easily from one person to another, compared with earlier strains. Additionally, the new CDC mask guidance issued today included a recommendation for universal masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status.

The State of Nevada continues to encourage all residents and visitors to be vaccinated as soon as they are able. All three vaccines are safe and effective and Nevadans 12 years of age and older are encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Go to NVCOVIDFighter.org or call 1-800-401-0946 for the latest information on appointment and walk-in availability.” Press Release on July 27, 2021, Meghin Delaney Communications Director covid19washoe.com.

Until advised otherwise by the State Health officials, we are back to requiring masks inside the Cafe and Gallery. Once seated inside the Cafe and as long as you eating or drinking, you do not need to wear a mask, as it hinders the consumption of our tasty coffee drinks.

Stay Healthy and remember to be kind!
