NEVADA – Nevada Governor Joe Lombardo has taken action by signing State Senate Bill 441, which removes the requirement for daily cleanings of hotel rooms. The bill’s language focuses on the regulations established by district boards of health regarding SARS-COV-2 and COVID-19 protocols. Senator Marilyn Dondero Loop spearheaded the bill as its primary sponsor.
According to Sen. Loop, this bill serves as a declaration that the last remaining law from the emergency COVID-era in Nevada is coming to an end. The declaration aligns with the acknowledgment of two Nevada governors and President Biden, who have all declared the COVID-19 crisis to be nearing its conclusion.
The Culinary Union, representing numerous Nevada housekeepers, expressed disappointment and opposition to the bill. In a statement, the union emphasized that a majority of Democrats, alongside all Republicans in the Nevada Senate, voted on April 14, 2023, to revoke protections for guest room attendants, a group predominantly comprised of single mothers and working women of color. The Culinary Union commended Democratic Senators Fabian Donate, Edgar Flores, and James Ohrenschall for standing with workers and voting against the bill.
