If you haven’t already heard, Vegas is reopening! Starting June 4 some casinos will reopen, all with some nod to the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Caesars released the following statement regarding the opening of three of its properties:

Harrah’s Las Vegas, Caesars Palace and Flamingo Las Vegas will also implement the Company’s previously announced health and safety protocols, enhancing existing plans and practices in these areas. The Company is focused on the well-being of team members, guests and the community, and is working to create an environment with enhanced standards of sanitization and physical distancing practices. Health screenings will be conducted on all employees before they return to work and employees will be screened every workday thereafter. Hotel guests will undergo temperature screening immediately prior to check in. Employees will be required to wear masks at work, and guests will be strongly encouraged to wear masks as well.

Social distancing includes the following changes at Table Games and Slot Machines:

  • The number of seats at blackjack tables reduced from six to three. Some casinos will also have plexiglass barriers between players and dealers.
  • Craps tables will see a more dramatic decline: from a maximum of 15 players to a six.
  • Every other game is going to be deactivated and every other chair is going to be removed

Some casinos will have thermal imaging cameras take the temperature of guests as they enter the property. Think Wynn, Encore and Venetian.

Some hotels will provide amenity kits that include face masks, gloves and hand sanitizers in guest rooms.

Casinos are also limiting the number of guests on the casino floor to 50%, some even less, Bellagio is set at 30%.
