My larger local county officials are on the local news this hour (complete with home internet buffering) saying they will be distributing 3 million of those blue masks starting today. There's also 4 places to get COVID-19 testing if you have symptoms.

May 22nd does seem overly optimistic, I'll give you that, although at least one Casino in the US is already open per their website.

Some casinos in Las Vegas will be opening the week of May 25 to May 31. This is a 100% certainty. There is a lesser chance that some casinos open May 16 to May 24, but it is possible.

My local News Station says that Vegas is poised to reopen as early as May 22nd and they will be putting thermal sensors at entrances(People with body temperatures of over 100 will be basically denied entrance. The News Anchor mentioned Las Vegas Weather having a degree of 105 and implied denying people with body temperatures of over 100 is a bad idea) and machines will be sanitized frequently and will be spaced 6 feet apart.


No chance.

Phase 3 or 4 will likely be mid to late June, imo.

Would not be shocked if July is in play.

Unless this Governor is completely full of crap....his phase 3 and 4 opening is likely mid June. Phase 3 might be locals casinos and phase 4 is mega resorts.

Phase 1 is set for May 15. Casinos are no where close to opening.

Not sure where you are getting your info.

My brother works for the Nevada Gaming Board. Gaming has set the target date from May 15 to May 31 for casino openings. June or later is not even in the discussion at the moment. The governor has delegated power to them to decide on opening dates for casinos. There is no distinction between casinos as mega resort or small resort. There is no written order for “phases” and how many there will be. Phase 3 will come the week of Memorial Day. Many casinos will choose to open at least one of their properties that weekend. I’m predicting soft openings May 26-31.

I don't see how the gaming board is setting the dates when the Governor and his health and science experts have been CLEAR that they are in charge of setting the dates and timeline for opening. The gaming board has no health and science experts....it’s basically lawyers!! how the hell could they be in charge of decisions as it relates to the virus, the numbers, the deaths and correspond that to opening dates?

The earliest date I got was from an employee at Red Rock (locals casino) who has been called back to work on May 31. There will likely be some retraining as this person is in food service and I suspect they will need some time (day or days) to acclimate to the changes. Again, these dates have been a moving target...changing each week and getting pushed out further.

This was the last official word from the gaming control board on procedure and policy....

“The policy, posted late Tuesday on the Control Board’s website, describes a streamlined process that will enable companies to reinstate the registration of casino employees laid off or furloughed during the pandemic.

The memo also provides for companies to offer phased openings of different parts of resorts. Company executives have indicated they aren’t expecting all areas in casinos to open at the same time.

The memorandum, authored by board member Terry Johnson, lists no opening dates, instead referencing when “the governor authorizes reopening of gaming operations” as the restarting date”

I can tell you that some casinos will open up the last week of May with 50% capacity. The Gaming Board is working directly with the health professionals. The Governor is no longer dealing with the casinos. Boyd will open casinos in the first wave for locals. Treasure Island will be in the first wave of strip openings.
