LAS VEGAS (KSNV) -- As the Governor of Nevada issues a directive to close all non-essential businesses for a minimum of 30 days, one strip club said it will remain open.

Little Darlings, owned by Deja Vu in Las Vegas, said it will remain open because it continues to abide by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention "social distancing" guidelines.

Ryan Carlson, director of operations, said it will continue its tradition of offering nude dancing for 30 years.

Guests who are interested in "further separation" will be able to view drive-thru strip shows starting on Friday, Mar. 20.

"And on Saturday, we will be launching our new feature show at midnight, XXX Nude Hand Sanitizer Wrestling," Carlson added.

The strip club said America remains a free country, with strippers as a "fabric of American life."

Carlson explained that "the world cannot stop turning for a cold."

According to the Nevada Health Response COVID-19 Risk Mitigation Initiative, Little Darlings was classified as "non-essential."
