Gaming regulators say casino restaurants are allowed to reopen, with restrictions

Friday 15th May 2020

Nevada gaming regulators are giving restaurants inside still-shuttered casino properties the green light to reopen, with some significant restrictions still in place.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board issued a notice to the state's licensed casino gaming industry on Thursday night outlining the steps needed for a restaurant inside a casino to reopen. The state's gaming industry was not included in Gov. Steve Sisolak's Phase 1 reopening plan, though restaurants and other retail stores are now allowed to operate limited in-person services with strict social distancing measures in place.

The notice says any restaurant inside a casino can reopen if it follows the industry-specific guideline previously released by the state, as well as following several other directives including:

"The Board will be enforcing these health and safety requirements on any licensee that decides to partially open a restaurant, and these restrictions are subject to change based on new data related to the spread of COVID-19," the notice says.
