From the Nevada Independent :. When word got to Alice Little that brothels in Nevada would be closing for 30 days to comply with state orders and slow the spread of COVID, she brought the two houseplants in her room at the Bunny Ranch down to the front desk and asked the employee there to look after them while she was gone.
Little is one of hundreds of legal sex workers in the state who lost their major source of income when brothels and other businesses shut down mid-March. While most other websites have been able to some level of operations, Gov. Steve Sisolak has indicated that the state's brothels are "not on his radar" to reopen. Services allowing physical contact around the state have been allowed to service, with tattoo shops, estheticians, and massage parlors open glendora May. Women who work in Nevada's legal sex industry say they feel they're being ignored not because of the prostitute their business poses but because of a bias against their industry.
