Las Vegas Is Closed
The affects of the Coronavirus pandemic continue to be felt as Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak on Tuesday announced a statewide closure of all casinos, restaurants, bars and other nonessential businesses for 30 days and strongly encouraged Nevadans to stay inside as part of the state’s latest response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
This 30 day window is more than the original 2 week closure that MGM and Wynn/Encore announced at their properties. These closures will bring the gaming capitol of the world to a complete standstill.
Governor Sisolak has said the closures could be longer than the initial 30-day ban and the closures will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
The businesses that will be allowed to stay open includes grocery stores, gas stations, medical offices and similar services, Sisolak said. Restaurants that can provide delivery, drive-through, pick-up or curbside service will also be allowed to stay open, but no sit-down dining will be allowed.
