Las Vegas News Update 

Family-owned and independent restaurants are allowed to stay open amid the governor's emergency shutdown and are working hard to communicate to customers that they are allowed to operate-- albeit under strict orders. Restaurants are asked to comply with Governor Steve Sisolak's recommended 30-day ban on dine-in restaurants; businesses are allowed to implement takeout, curbside pickup and delivery services. Napoli Pizzeria off Warm Springs Road in Henderson posted their commitment to open on social media and kept their "open" sign on. Las Vegas News  From calls to the restaurant to a passerby, customers discovered they were open. "We're one of the few companies around us that's open," said manager Chase Jackson. Businesses said when locals patronize small businesses, it directly feeds families. "It helped keep me in a job, pay the bills, pay my employees as well," Jackson said. Other businesses, such as Tony's Mexican Grill off Marks Street, has seen business slow down with all the closures of nearby strip malls. "We need a job. We need a job to support our families," said Isabel Montano of Tony's Mexican Grill.

Tuesday, Governor Steve Sisolak asked all nonessential businesses in Nevada to shut down for the next 30 days. On Wednesday, dozens of people called, emailed and sent social media messages to FOX5 saying their employers in the valley chose to stay open. “I feel uncomfortable being there with all those people there,” said a woman who works at Sykes Enterprises. To hide her identity, FOX5 changed her name to Emily. Sykes is a call centre for entertainment and gaming. Emily said she was one of about 200 people who showed up to work on Press Release Distribution Las Vegas Services Wednesday. People call her when they need support for entertainment and gaming such as refunds or hardware issues. She said about 250 people work there. “We’re about two to three ft. apart with computers at our desks,” said Emily. Emily said the majority of those close-knit desks were filled Wednesday. Despite what Governor Sisolak said on Tuesday.“They’re trying to find a loophole to keep their company open,” said Emily. “I ask all our businesses who must remain open to considering hiring those who will be out of work for the next few weeks. Delivery services will need drivers. Call centres need people to handle increased volume,” said Governor Sisolak.
