Vegas Casinos Closing

Things continue to change at a rapid pace when it comes to the Coronavirus epidemic. As you might expect, Las Vegas will be among the hardest hit places in this country given its huge reliance on the tourism industry. While some casino operators had held hope they could remain open, that is not meant to be. They will be shut for at least 30 days by order of Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak.

New Nevada Coronavirus Closures & Restrictions

In a press conference Governor Sisolak explained the following restrictions will be in place. These restrictions include the closure of all of Nevada’s casinos including those on the Las Vegas Strip.

  • All casinos, restaurants, bars and other nonessential businesses will close for 30 days
  • Closures are subject to extension
  • Nonessential businesses must be closed by Wednesday 3/18/20 at Noon Pacific
  • Nevadans are encouraged to stay inside, but no mandatory orders have been given
  • Grocery stores, gas stations and medical offices can remain open
  • Restaurant dining rooms will be closed, however delivery, pick-up and drive-through options can remain open

People Should Stay Home

The other day I expressed my hope that people would begin social distancing and self isolation sooner rather than later. While I know many people including myself have taken this seriously, many have not. I am glad the government is forcing all casinos and other public spaces shut down. The sooner we get this under control the sooner we can fix the damage done and try to rebuild.

Vegas and indeed the world probably won’t be the same for awhile if ever.

  1. I have no sympathy with them they are to greedy. after 9/11 everyone went back to vegas eventually only to be stung by a resort fee. charging people for amenities that had been in with the price of your room for years. eg;wifi gym and the pool. we used to go every month to a hotel downtown and it closed for 10 months for complete renovations, when it reopened I enquired why we were not getting any mail from them with offers , they said it was because we had not been for 10 month. I had to remind them they had closed down.There is no doubt in my mind that there is someone racking there brains at tHIS MIN TRYING TO COME UP WITH SOME OTHER WAY IN WHICH TO RETRIEVE THE MONEY THEY ARE NOW LOSING AT THE PUNTERS EXPENSE

  2. Who needs Las Vegas. I have plenty of toilet paper and lots of cans of soup and tuna fish if the apocalypse comes.

    Seriously, I fear that the “cure” is worse than the disease. While everyone is suffering, I really feel for the folks that work paycheck to paycheck. Destroying the economy with moves like this is going to lead to stress related ailments including suicides for sure.

  3. I’m really tired of this whole “social distancing” thing. I get why but some need to remember that not all of us have the luxury of working from home. Some of us need to get to grocery stores still. I’m not going out to brunch everyday. I’m tired of some people saying that I’m being “selfish” and “childish” because I have a life to live. I’m taking precautions in my everyday tasks.

  4. I disagree, after this Vegas might be moving back to being a great bargain destination instead of having to pay $400 a night for a room so that you can go lose more at the tables 😀
