NV governor sets target date for casino reopenings

26 May 2020

Nevada governor Steve Sisolak has set a target date of 4 June for the reopening of the state’s casinos.

All casinos in the state were ordered to close on 17 March due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, but with other states such as Louisiana and Mississippi reopening last week, Nevada has set out a roadmap of its own.

Earlier this month, the Nevada Gaming Control Board provided guidelines for reopening. Casinos must limit the number of players in their facilities and at gaming tables in order to prevent transmission of the virus.

Player limits will be set for table games at three players per blackjack table, six players per craps table, four players per roulette table, and four players per poker table.
