Reports on social media have confirmed that Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak has announced that he is allowing casinos to reopen for not just in Las Vegas, but throughout the state on June 4.
Sisolak stated that the reopening of the casinos are to welcome back in tourists and visitors to the Silver State and the ‘glitzy, gambling mecca of Las Vegas.’
This phase will be looked upon with practicing of social distancing and stricter health measures, such as sanitizing.
“We’ve taken every precaution possible. I don’t think you’re going to find a safer place to come than Las Vegas by June 4, with the protocols that we’ve put in place, than the testing that we’ve put in place, with the contact tracing that will be in place by that time,” Sisolak said in an article by WGN Chicago. “We’re encouraging visitors to come and enjoy themselves and have a good time.”
However, even though casinos will be open, brothels, strip clubs, and nightclubs will remain closed until further notice.
As part of the reopening of the casinos in Nevada, Sisolak also stated that he will allow religious services that can be held in-person for up to 50 people starting Friday.
The governor also said if there is a spike in new cases upon the reopening, the state will be prepared to shut down again.
