LAS VEGAS (AP) - One Nevada agency is allowing a Rejuvenice cryotherapy center in Las Vegas to reopen after an employee was found dead inside a chamber chilled by liquid nitrogen at another location.

The state Division of Industrial Relations on Oct. 27 shut down indefinitely three of the business’ shops on the technicality that the company didn’t have the proper worker’s compensation insurance.

Days later, the Charleston Boulevard location was verified with proof of insurance, allowing it to reopen.

But it’s unclear if the business is open as of Friday because Rejuvenice had also lacked other state and local approvals. Calls to the store weren’t answered.

Two other locations are still under the worker’s comp order for closure, including the site where 24-year-old Chelsea Ake-Salvacion worked and was found dead on Oct. 20.
