ALL STORAGE VEGAS TO MIRROR CLARK COUNTY AND CDC DIRECTIVES IN NEVADA
If you are not already aware, Clark County’s COVID-19 Mitigation Plan is set to expire today June 1, 2021. This means starting June 1, Clark County is going back to pre-pandemic guidelines that lift restrictions on capacity limits, social distancing, etc. See below hyperlink for the full article.
It is evident that the majority of the city is relaxing their mask policies and many people are out and about without masks. After much discussion, the All Storage Management Team has decided to mirror the CDC’s recommendations and Clark County’s directive. Employees and customers who are fully vaccinated are no longer required to wear masks while on property. This means that as of today we are comfortable leaving it up to the choice of both employees and customers of whether or not to wear a mask/face covering on property. All Storage is not going to be the mask police or the vaccination police, and instead are trusting our employees and customers to do the right thing. If employees or customers are not fully vaccinated, they should continue to take the proper precautions and wear a face covering. Of course, employees and customers are free to continue to wear a mask at your discretion with no stigma or judgment attached.
We are all very excited and hopeful as we continue to progress towards pre-pandemic normalcy…

CLARK COUNTY (LAS VEGAS, NV) LOCAL COVID-19 MITIGATION PLAN EXPIRES JUNE 1, 2021
The local COVID-19 mitigation plan will expire June 1, allowing for the return of pre-pandemic guidelines that lift restrictions involving capacity limits, large gatherings and more, the Clark County Commission decided today.
The new CDC guidance on masks recommends that those who are not vaccinated continue wearing masks and following social distancing and other precautions until fully vaccinated. The guidance allows fully vaccinated people to stop wearing face coverings in crowds and in many indoor locations. The new guidance at the federal, state and now local level allows private businesses and organizations to require patrons and employees to wear face coverings.
Additionally, masks still must be worn in hospitals and healthcare facilities and on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States, and in transportation hubs such as airports and stations. More guidance about masks is on the CDC’s website at https://bit.ly/3ftHiNU.
Officials said increasing vaccination rates, a low positivity rate and normal hospitalization rates all justify the lifting of restrictions. In the event that hospitalizations should rise, additional mitigation measures may be required for the protection of the community, officials said.
“Public safety has been our priority from the beginning of the pandemic in accordance with guidance set by the CDC and the governor’s directives,” said Clark County Commission Chairman Marilyn Kirkpatrick. “Our community has made huge strides in containing the virus, and we will continue to work with all our partners to keep our caseloads and local hospital capacity in check. As we celebrate this milestone in getting back to normal life, we also want to remind our community that we need to continue looking out for the health and safety of each other. If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, please wear a mask and practice social distancing until you are. Getting vaccinated is the key to stopping COVID-19 and keeping our community safe.”
Clark County worked with the Southern Nevada Health District and community stakeholders including the cities of Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas, Mesquite and Boulder City on the matter. The existing mitigation plan went into effect May 1 after the state of Nevada delegated authority to Clark County to manage COVID-19 mitigation measures consistent with statewide directives. The local plan at that time increased capacity restrictions for public gatherings to 80 percent and reduced social distancing requirements from six to three feet.
Once the local mitigation plan is no longer in effect, it will be more important for people to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance on wearing masks, per state directive, to ensure COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continue to decline. Additionally, existing regulations set for by state and local jurisdictions including the Nevada Gaming Control Board and Nevada OSHA will apply.
“This is a major milestone in the region’s response and recovery to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said North Las Vegas City Councilman Scott Black, who also chairs the Southern Nevada Health District Board of Health. “For the past 15 months, the city of North Las Vegas has worked closely with Clark County and neighboring cities to analyze, plan and carry out mitigation and enforcement efforts that align with CDC, state and SNHD guidelines. The city will continue to support regional efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19 and reach all residents, especially access to testing, vaccines and other relief for those who live in under vaccinated communities, as we work together to safely reopen our economy.”
In ending the mitigation plan, a provision was dropped that required 60 percent of eligible residents to have at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine before reopening to 100 percent capacity. Officials said they are hopeful vaccination rates will increase in the community as efforts continue to make the vaccines widely accessible to the public through pop-up clinics, community sites and special events. Appointments at Health District and community partner vaccine clinics are available at www.snhd.info/covid-vaccine or by calling the state’s vaccine hotline at 1-800-401-0946, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. The COVID-19 vaccine also is available to those who are homebound. For information call (702) 455-0696 or email HomeboundVaccine@ClarkCountyNV.gov. Additional COVID-19 clinic information can be found online at www.NVCOVIDFighter.org.
“All of the cities and Clark County have worked together to help get our community vaccinated and to take the necessary steps to safely reopen,” city of Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman said. “We are one community, and I am excited that we are now fully reopening our economy.”
“While the COVID-19 virus is far from eradicated, the widespread availability of effective vaccines has greatly lowered the risk to the community and it is time to loosen restrictions,” said Henderson Mayor Debra March. “By continuing to follow the guidelines established by the CDC, we can safely transition Clark County residents back to their pre-pandemic lifestyle with family, friends and coworkers.”
The Commission approved a revision to the mitigation plan to align the face covering section with the new CDC guidance on masks. The new language encourages compliance with face covering requirements for non-vaccinated attendees, vendors and performers. Organizers of large gatherings with more than 250 attendees scheduled in Clark County prior to June 1 are required to submit a COVID-19 Preparedness and Safety Plan. Those that have received approval letters for their events – about 30 to date – will be contacted and asked to resubmit the letters with a signed and dated copy of the face coverings section of the plan containing the updated guidance on masks. Organizers are asked to check the box related to that revised section and email a copy of the letter and signed form to: firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to CDC guidance, the public is encouraged to consult the following resources regarding health and safety regulations and COVID-19-related information:
“The COVID-19 pandemic has caused enormous hardships for so many over the past fifteen months,” said Boulder City Mayor Kiernan McManus. “The guidance of the CDC, the State of Nevada, and the availability of vaccines have made a positive impact on keeping many of our residents protected from the virus. Seeing the strain of the pandemic lifting and the threat of the disease lessening is what we have all been hoping to realize. Having more of our residents be vaccinated may finally put this behind us and let us all get the important parts of our lives back.”

ALL STORAGE COVID-19 PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES UPDATE
The health and safety of you, our customers and guests, is of utmost importance to us at All Storage. We are closely monitoring COVID-19 updates from the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization for additional preventative practices to implement. We will continue to modify these precautions and policies as needed to address the threat of COVID-19.
CONTACT-FREE INTERACTION OPTIONS
All Storage is one of the few storage companies that offers electronic and phone alternatives to personal interaction. We believe in excellent face-to-face customer service, but if possible, we ask that you avoid any personal interaction during this time:
We are implementing employee policies for easier access to paid and unpaid leaves of absence to encourage employees to follow any and all CDC guidelines – including staying home when sick. If an employee becomes ill, they will be asked to go home and not return until they are symptom free without medication for 24 hours.
Our employees have been advised to wash hands frequently for a minimum of 20 seconds or to use hand sanitizer with at least 70% alcohol. They have also been advised to cover all coughs and sneezes with a disposable tissue.
We have advised our employees on how to maintain a safe social distance from other employees and customers as a precaution. We are currently asking you to transact with us one-at-a-time or even without entering the office. We apologize for not making you as comfortable as possible. As an alternative, please consider using our phone and electronic methods for renting storage units, making payments, or contacting us for information.
STORE CLOSINGS – NONE AS OF 08/01/20
All Storage will make every effort to remain open unless a governing body orders business closures as an emergency precaution. Many of our customers are depending on their storage units for supply chain continuity. To support our customers' efforts to support communities and maintain stability, we are committed to remain at their service.
In the event that we are alerted that a store office has been exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19, we will immediately close the office until we can have it properly cleaned and made safe for reopening.
Personal workstations, desks, phones and copiers are receiving additional and more detailed disinfectant cleaning. We will be cleaning our gate keypads, door handles, counters, fixtures, pushcarts and other frequently handled areas of our property routinely.
We are known for having clean restrooms available for our guests. We will be cleaning more frequently and keep our restrooms fully stocked with soap. While most of our restrooms are currently available for use, the open ones may be closed down in the near future due to public safety concerns.
VISITING YOUR UNIT
As a precautionary measure and part of stringent social distancing recommended by the health experts, we suggest limiting trips to your storage unit for the next several weeks. We ask that you do not access your unit unless it is for essential needs. While on-site:
We firmly ask any customers who are ill to stay at home and call or visit us online.
Again, the health and safety of our customers and associates are our top priority and we’re committed to doing our part to help keep you safe. Please do your part to help us keep our facilities open and operating.
March 16, 2020
As communities begin to feel the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to share with you the steps we’re taking at All Storage to help protect the health and safety of our customers and associates, which is always our top priority.
We’re closely monitoring local and national reports on the evolving impact of COVID-19 and, based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization and applicable public health agencies, we’ve developed plans that will allow us to respond timely and appropriately.
Our housekeeping and sanitization efforts in our offices and our buildings have been greatly expanded. We’re frequently disinfecting often-touched surfaces such as door handles, countertops, keypads, restroom surfaces, carts, tools, railings and elevator buttons. We’re asking all of our associates (and we urge everyone) to follow the CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the infection.
We feel deeply for those who have been affected. Thankfully, as of now, we’re not aware of any associate contracting COVID-19. But we have implemented guidelines that instruct any associate who may develop symptoms or come into contact with infected individuals to stay home and follow the CDC’s instructions. And impacted associates will be compensated for their missed work hours.
At this time, all of our stores are open for business during their regular hours to meet the needs of our customers. If we become aware of any condition in any store that would make it unsafe, please rest assured that we’ll close the store until those conditions have been addressed. We will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation.
As a precautionary measure and part of voluntary social distancing recommended by the health experts, we suggest limiting trips to your storage unit for the next several weeks. Again, the health and safety of our customers and associates are our top priority and we’re committed to doing our part to help keep you safe.
