Nevada’s casinos have seen their attendance limitations move from 25 per cent to 35 per cent of capacity with Governor Steve Sisolak saying that could rise to 50 per cent in a month’s time.
He said he was handing any future capacity changes over to state gaming regulators.
Governor Sisolak said: “The Gaming Control Board will make that call. The Board and the Gaming Commission ultimately have authority over any licensed properties. It’s important everyone that has a face-to-face interaction with one of our tourists gets a vaccine. It protects our workers and residents and I want everyone coming here to know this is the safest place for a vacation. The goal of this plan is to avoid a scenario where I have to come before all of you again and pause our efforts. I believe this plan can work, but we must all invest in making it successful.”
MGM Resorts International’s CEO Bill Hornbuckle commented: “I’m hoping by end of spring, as we go into June, we’ll see yet another significant rollback.”
