Sparks Trucking Company Fined After Trump Jr. Rally Breaks Covid-19 Restrictions
SPARKS, Nev. — After a Donald Trump Rally last month drew more than 50 people, state regulators have decided to fine a local trucking company in Sparks for more than $4,500. The rally broke Nevada’s coronavirus restrictions by drawing a crowd of more than 50 people.
The decision was announced Thursday against JBP Corp. doing business as Peterbilt Truck Parts & Equipment. It was announced by the Department of Business and Industry, Division of Industrial Relations and enforced by OSHA. They cited that the $4,554 fine was directly due to the failure to submit a safety plan and obtain state approval for an event in excess of 50 people.
They aren’t the only businesses to be fined by the department this month either. Aria Resort & Casino, located in Las Vegas was fined $12,617. Also fined was the Eureka Owl Club in Eureka for $2,950. Both businesses were fined for COVID-19 violations.
Owners of the Aria stated that they intend to challenge the citation, which alleges a lack of social distancing at POS terminals used by employees. The state said the Eureka Owl CLub was fined for the failure to enforce properly worn face coverings by employees.
Last month, the Minden Airport ABS aviation were fined $2,603 and Douglas County $2,950 for hosting a rally for President Trump that drew thousands. Henderson also fined the owner of an equipment rental firm for hosting an indoor rally for Trump.
