Las Vegas officials stormed a hotel and shut down the Mrs Nevada Beauty pageant for violating social distancing rules, just days after the same hotel was fined for hosting a Evangelicals for Trump event.
The City of Las Vegas Business Licensing shut down Mrs Nevada on Sunday evening after the crowd size was found to be in violation of Nevada mandates brought in to combat the spread of coronavirus.
Contestants vying to be the next Mrs. Nevada America were left competing in an empty room at the Ahern Hotel in Las Vegas after attendees were ordered to leave.
Currently in the state of Nevada, public and private gatherings are limited to 50 or fewer people and everyone must be wearing face masks.
