BLM Nevada COVID-19 Information

Public Rooms and Visitor Centers

Continuing our service to the public while doing our part to address COVID-19 is very important. Following guidance from the CDC and recommendations from state and local public health authorities, the BLM visitor centers and public rooms at Nevada offices have expanded operations but many employees are still teleworking so we recommend scheduling an appointment if you want to set up a meeting with a specific person.

Nevada COVID-19 Directive Information


The BLM urges visitors to do their part when visiting your public lands as some visitor services may be limited due to limited staff availability in some areas. We recommend:

  • contacting the area you want to visit before heading out
  • bringing your own supplies such as disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, and toilet paper
  • packing out your trash
  • reducing the handling of cash by paying recreation fees through or with a check, where available

Follow local, state, and CDC guidance:

  • maintain a safe distance between yourself and other groups
  • wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; or use hand sanitizer if you can’t wash your hands
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze
  • stay home if you feel sick
