Reno and Sparks city councils will resume face-to-face public meetings in June.
The two have had virtual meetings since March 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Town of Sparks on Tuesday announced the reopening of its Town Hall on June 1. Most of the services have only been accessible online or by appointment for 15 months. Services that will resume in person include those who wish to make sewer payments, apply for building permits and business licenses, and requests for public documents.
The Washoe County Board and Washoe County School District Board have been holding face-to-face meetings for months.
The school district resumed face-to-face meetings when the school year began in August, but held two meetings in April, largely over fears that some people in the crowd were not wearing masks at a meeting on the 30th. March. In-person meetings resumed in May.
The Town of Reno has had its building open for services but the return to face-to-face meetings begins again when the council meets on June 2.
No further details were immediately available, including whether there would be a mask policy for those vaccinated.
The City of Sparks said masks would not be required from people who have been vaccinated.
