Ever since the governor of Nevada gave casinos the green light to reopen, Las Vegas is back in business. Gambling venues can open their door to the betting public on Thursday, June 4. However, they must first meet the stringent requirements in place to protect the health of employees and casino guests. In this article, we will discuss the updated openings for Las Vegas casinos.
These requirements are being closely monitored by the Nevada Gaming Control Board. Casino capacity will be limited to 50 percent and total occupancy must be controlled. Part of the sanitizing effort includes frequent hand washing by each casino’s staff. Constant cleaning needs to take place at table games and slots. Social distancing will also be instituted. COVID-19 safety training needs to be put into place.
What Are The Updated Openings For Las Vegas Casinos?
Restrictions limit Blackjack tables to three patrons. Roulette tables can accommodate up to six players at one time. The gaming board has set the minimum standards. Individual casinos can put stricter guidelines in place if they choose. Bar and restaurant seating will also be limited. Nightclubs and public pools will remained closed for now.
Once a casino property has its individual plan approved, it can reopen its doors. Interestingly, plans for reopening Las Vegas continue to expand.
