US.- The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority has announced that the city received 1.25 million visitors in December. The number of visitors was down 17.6 per cent month-on-month down 64 per cent year-on-year.

It’s the lowest monthly total since May, when all casinos were closed due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

Kevin Bagger, LVCVA director of research, said: “With the resumption of broader Covid-19 related restrictions across the country and the absence of traditional season special events such as NFR, Las Vegas visitation came in at approximately 1.247 million people, down 17.6 per cent from November and down 64 per cent from December 2019.” 

Las Vegas received 19 million visitors in 2020, its lowest annual visitation since 1989, in a year that saw the city in lockdown for 78 days due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
