Las Vegas Casino Reopenings: All the Updates

A running list of how the state, casinos, health officials, and more are shaping the way restaurants and casinos on and off the Strip will look when they can reopen


Ever since Gov. Steve Sisolak closed nonessential businesses — including dine-in restaurants, bars, and casinos — in Nevada on March 17 to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the questions have been: when will restaurants and casinos reopen and what will they look like?


Casinos officially reopen on June 4 with restrictions. Casinos can only open at 50 percent capacity and will need to limit the number of people allowed inside. The Nevada Gaming Control Board also recommends frequent hand washing by staff, cleaning and social distancing at table games and slot machines, hand sanitizer available to visitors, and training on COVID-19 safety and disinfection protocols in English and Spanish for staff.


The board notes its guidelines represent minimum requirements that should be followed, and casinos can develop their own requirements.


Restaurants and bars in casinos also will need to rearrange seating with social distancing protocols.


Nightclubs and dayclub pool parties at a casino must remain closed, although pools can reopen with seating arranged with social distancing in mind.


The board already permitted restaurants with dine-in service inside casinos to reopen as long as customers do not enter by walking on the casino floor. Same goes for access to the bathroom. Wynn Las Vegas, Red Rock Resort, and Green Valley Ranch reopened some of their restaurants ahead of casinos reopening.


To keep track of these ever-changing moves, follow this frequently updated guide to casinos reopening in Las Vegas.
