The state of Nevada will lift certain Covid-19 lockdown restrictions but casinos and gaming venues will remain closed for the time being.
US.- The state of Nevada will lift certain lockdown restrictions but casinos and gaming venues will remain closed under new state guidelines.
Gov. Steve Sisolak announced on Thursday that lockdown restrictions will be lifted earlier than expected from Saturday (May 9) in a phased process.
But phase one of the governor’s plan does not include casinos and other gaming establishments.
In a press conference, Sisolak said: “I want to emphasise we’re not done with this fight. We don’t want to put our gloves down.
“It will not go away until we have a vaccine, and we may not have a vaccine anytime soon. More patience on our behalf will mean less patients in our hospitals.”
Since the Covid-19 pandemic, casinos in Las Vegas have been hit hard due to the forced closures.
It was reported in April that casino stocks had plummeted as a result of the outbreak.
