This Week in Gambling: Las Vegas casinos could require vaccinations

19 August 2021

At least one casino in America has started requiring proof of COVID vaccinations before admitting guests, and some shows and events in Las Vegas are doing the same. With coronavirus still surging through a third wave, Las Vegas casinos are considering a requirement that their guests must show that they are fully vaccinated. Meanwhile, the World Series of Poker COVID rules have been issued, which have some players considering skipping the event.

Amid the Delta variant surge of Coronavirus, many are wondering if Las Vegas Covid testing and/or vaccine proof will become a requirement at casinos. The Centers for Disease Control is reporting that Harrah’s Casino in New Orleans has become the first in the nation to require guests to show this proof before being allowed to enter. The property is owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment.

However, the New Orleans decision comes amidst new vaccine requirements from the mayor. Those requirements also apply to indoor dining, bars, and other forms of indoor entertainment. Those who want access to those establishments will also be required to produce proof of their vaccination or negative Covid test results.

Worth noting is that the thought of Las Vegas casinos requiring vaccination proof has already been reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Additionally, there are already a few shows and events requiring either a negative Las Vegas Covid test or proof of vaccination. Recently, the Nevada Governor stated that he did not want to impose more restrictions, but did not rule them out if the state vaccination rate does not improve.
