“In alignment with applicable guidance from the CDC, the Governor of Nevada, the Southern Nevada Health District guidance, the Clark County Commissioners, and the Nevada Gaming Control Board, masks will be required on the HIMSS21 Campus,” wrote HIMSS representatives on the organization’s HIMSS21 Health and Safety Hub.
