Wynn Las Vegas Goes Maskless

Wynn Las Vegas Goes Maskless

Wynn Las Vegas and Encore have announced that guests are no longer required to wear a mask if they are fully vaccinated. The news comes after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its guideline for those fully vaccinated, saying they no longer need to wear a mask or social distance in most indoor settings.

Likewise, company employees will follow a similar policy. The Company currently has a vaccination rate of 91% among its employees in Las Vegas and as a result, was granted permission by the Nevada Gaming Control Board to amend its occupancy and physical distancing requirements. Effective May 10, the gaming areas at both Wynn and Encore were permitted to run at 100% occupancy and plexiglass dividers were removed from all table games and slot machines.

In general, people are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine.

Masks are still required for guests who are not vaccinated yet. The resort says it “trusts them to take the appropriate precautions based on their personal vaccination status.” The company will not ask guests for vaccination proof, but it will require it from its employees, before they’re allowed to set aside their masks.

The new rules were possible since Gov. Steve Sisolak has already signed Emergency Directive 045 on May 3, which permits Nevada to follow CDC guidance on wearing masks. That means that the state now does not require nor prohibit private entities from confirming their customers’ vaccination status.
