Las Vegas Plans to Reopen Casinos with Several Measures in Place


Nevada to Reopen Casinos Statewide as New COVID-19 Cases Decrease

Guests were asked to expect a new normal as Las Vegas was set to reopen casinos following its coronavirus lockdown.

Casinos in Nevada were set to reopen statewide on June 4 after the state recorded two weeks of continued decrease in both new coronavirus cases and hospitalizations.

Casinos were required to submit plans for reopening, which would require approval at least a week ahead of actually opening their doors. Other businesses including nightclubs, day clubs, buffets and large venues were to remain closed until further notice.

Casino guests were expected to practice much social distancing, and signs would be installed everywhere to remind people to wash their hands, maintain social distancing and limit gatherings.

There would also be a limit on games and participants as well as plastic partitions separating dealers from players and players from each other.
