Nevada hotel casinos are required to close
following a mandate from Gov. Steve Sisolak, who said Tuesday that all
nonessential businesses in the state must shut down for 30 days as part of an
effort to mitigate spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus.
All gaming operations in the state were told to shutter by
midnight, with other nonessential venues required to shutter by mid-day
Wednesday. Hotels, restaurants and bars were included in the list of businesses
subject to closure.
Businesses permitted to remain open in Nevada include
pharmacies, grocery stores, drug and convenience stores, banks and financial
institutions, hardware stores and gas stations.
MGM Resorts and Wynn Resorts suspended Las Vegas operations
