With Nevada casinos permitted to reopen on June 4, Las Vegas resorts are ramping up their plans to resume operations. 

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak announced the June 4 reopening date on May 26. The state’s casinos have been closed under state order since March 17.

Wynn Las Vegas said that both the Wynn and Encore resort complexes will be reopening June 4, with a total of 16 restaurants, six bars and lounges, three shopping esplanades, five pools and two salons expected to be up and running. The casinos and 18-hole golf course will also be open.

Wynn is one of several major Las Vegas casino companies that has committed to testing employees for Covid-19 before they return to work. 

MGM Resorts, Caesars Entertainment and Boyd Gaming have partnered with Las Vegas’ University Medical Center, the Culinary Health Fund and the Las Vegas Convention Center to provide Covid-19 testing for their gaming employees.

Caesars has confirmed that Caesars Palace and the Flamingo Las Vegas will be the first of its Las Vegas resorts to open as soon as state restrictions are lifted. Both properties will offer lodging, dining options and access to their outdoor pools as well as slot machines and table games. Live entertainment, bars, spas, buffets and valet parking, however, will not be resuming immediately. 

Caesars added that the Harrah’s hotel and the Linq hotel’s gaming floor would reopen next, with timing based on customer demand.

MGM Resorts said the Bellagio, New York-New York and MGM Grand hotels will reopen June 4. The Bellagio’s fountains will resume operating as will the Petrossian Bar and Prime, Lago and Mayfair Supper Club restaurants. The Bellagio pool, salon and fitness center will also reopen.

At New York-New York, several bars and restaurants and the fitness center will reopen, along with the Big Apple Roller Coaster, Big Apple Arcade and Hershey's Chocolate World attractions.

MGM Grand plans to reopen a number of food and beverage outlets, including Craftsteak and Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, as well as its salon, fitness center and a portion of its pool. The Signature at MGM Grand all-suite resort will also be open for business.  

Las Vegas Sands will reopen the Venetian on June 4, with the Palazzo to follow at a later date. The Venetian’s reopening plans will include its casino, pool deck, fitness center and multiple retail outlets, as well as more than a dozen restaurants and several bars.

In Downtown Las Vegas, both the D Las Vegas and Golden Gate Hotel & Casino are scheduled to reopen June 4. To help jumpstart tourism in the city, D Las Vegas and Golden Gate CEO Derek Stevens launched the “Keep America Flying” promotion, under which he will give away 1,000 free one-way flights to Las Vegas from more than 20 U.S. cities.
