Caesars Palace Paying People to Wear Masks

We’ve covered the Las Vegas reopening quite a bit on Miles to Memories. We tracked the dates and rules released for reopening and were even on the Las Vegas Strip for opening night.

Very Few Masks In My Experience

One thing that has been constant since the beginning of the reopening has been the lack of masks in casinos. To back up, Nevada regulators only require employees to wear masks. While guests are “encouraged” to wear a face covering, it isn’t required. And most people simply don’t want to.

This past week there were some rumors that the Nevada Gaming Control Board was going to change its rules to require masks for everyone, but they didn’t do that. They did tweak the rules for table games, requiring masks for guests when playing at table games not featuring plexiglass barriers. Other casino guests still don’t have to wear them.

And that’s controversial here in Las Vegas. Casino employees largely have no choice but to return to work when called (or face losing unemployment) and many are not happy with the current circumstances. Of course tens of thousands of families in Vegas rely on tourism for their livelihood and everyone wants tourists to come. So what to do?

How One Casino Is Encouraging Guests to Wear Masks

Maybe Caesars Palace has figured something out. Take a look at this interesting tweet I found yesterday. What is a good and effective way to get gamblers to wear masks? Pay them! That is exactly what Caesars is doing.

As far as I understand this isn’t a new official policy, but it definitely is an interesting way to entice guests to cover their faces. It’s also a sign in my opinion that casinos are worried slightly about the increased case numbers in Nevada and how that could affect their business.

Increased cases could perhaps keep people from visiting, but they also could force regulators to implement much stricter regulations on casino visitors which in turn could take even more of the “fun” out of Vegas. If you’re against masks I could see this seeming a bit unfair, but those machines you play in the casino aren’t really fair either.

Caesars Palace Paying People to Wear Masks – Bottom Line

Las Vegas is very much not in the clear when it comes to the Coronavirus or the rebound of tourism. There is heavy political pressure to both keep the casinos operating as normal and to make changes, so we’ll see which side eventually wins. Either way, Las Vegas is still open for business and doing its best to get you to come and have fun in a safe way.

  1. Good for Caesar’s! It will decrease the virus impact, which is desperately needed. They are probably going to get most of the “payment” back, especially with the slots. I’m not going out there anytime soon, the increase in cases has me spooked. it’s obvious to me that not wearing masks and staying socially distant has caused a great increase in cases. Too many folks don’t want to face reality on this and help protect others. If it takes incentives to get them to do the right thing, then so be it. I wear mine anyway, and if I get something for that, yea!

  2. One should not have to be PAID to wear a MASK at the Casinos!! It is for your SAFETY and everyone else in these enclosed places!! This VIRUS (COVID 19) is still with us!! THINK AND ACT SMART!!!!!!!
