The Nevada Gaming Control Board seeks to fine venues that have not been complying with measures to prevent the spread of the Covid-19.

US.- The Nevada Gaming Control Board is to take action against casinos that failed to comply with requirements to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

State casino regulators are seeking fines against two casinos and a bowling alley in rural Nevada, where they say measures such as the compulsory use of face masks and social distancing have not been observed.

According to AP news agency, complaints were filed since against C.O.D. Casino in Minden and the Hotel Nevada & Gambling Hall in Ely.

The complaints in each case allege that during repeat visits held several days apart state inspectors saw employees and patrons either without face coverings or wearing them improperly.

At the Hotel Nevada, a regulator noted that casino employees had approached customers while an agent was taking photos and appeared to tell them to don face coverings.

A third complaint has been made against the bowling alley Bowl Incline on the Lake Tahoe shoreline for opening its bar area. Owner Curt Wegener said he was unaware of the suspension of the permission for bar areas to be open until a gaming control agent visited. The regulator noted bar-top slot machines were on and available for play, the complaint says.
