This Week in Gambling: 100% Las Vegas comeback this summer?

22 April 2021

The Governor of Nevada has announced plans to have casinos in his state operating at 100% by summer. And that includes an end to social distancing. Meanwhile, we remember the ten year anniversary of 'Black Friday'.

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak has announced plans to reopen Las Vegas, and all other counties in the state, at 100% occupancy by 1 June, That includes an end to the mandatory social distancing as early as 1 May.

Wearing masks is a bit different. The Governor added “I wish I could give all Nevadans an exact timeline as to when we can tuck away our masks – but public health officials made it clear that in order to reach our goal of reopening on 1 June, we must make sure Nevadans stay masked.”

Additionally, the Governor also confirmed that the Nevada Gaming Control Board will continue to maintain authority over casinos and other gaming establishments. As of now, the Board still has the maximum casino occupancy rate set at 50%.

Despite this Las Vegas reopen announcement, the positive rate for the state’s COVID-19 testing rose above 5% earlier this week. That rate has been rising consistently for the past eight days and is now at 5.2%. That number no longer meets the recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of just 5%.

And as a 100% Las Vegas reopen is nearing, the investment bank and financial services company Morgan Stanley says that the Las Vegas recovery on the backside of this pandemic is coming ‘fast and strong’. The company’s statements come as a part of their recent report on the gaming industry.
