As Gov. Steve Sisolak has announced the easing of social distancing restrictions effective May 1, exotic dancers in Las Vegas are anxious to get back to work under normal circumstances. Since the pandemic started last spring, most valley strip clubs have been closed completely. Some clubs, such as the Palomino Club and Sapphire have reopened but dancers must wear pasties, keep at least six feet away from patrons, and no lap dances have been allowed. Those restrictions have cut into the bottom lime for both the clubs and the dancers, who are independent contractors. Even when the restrictions are lifted, Clark County may still prohibit lap dances and require dancers to stay six feet from patrons as part of the county mitigation plan, which will be voted on next Tuesday. Still, dancers around town are ready for more clubs to reopen so they can get back to work.
