LAS VEGAS — When the clock struck 12:01 a.m. Thursday on the Las Vegas strip, casinos unlocked their doors.
It’s been 78 days since a hand of blackjack was dealt or a pair of dice was rolled because of the coronavirus pandemic at casinos in Nevada, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Visitors said not much has changed in the casinos except for temperature checks and the offer of a mask, the Review-Journal reported. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 degrees and above will not be able to go enter if they continue to have a high temperature after a 15-minute wait.
Resorts are also offering touchless arrivals like automatically opening doors and curbside check-in, the Las Vegas Sun reported.
Casinos were told to operate at a 50% capacity, according to the Review-Journal. Every other chair at slot machines were removed and limited spots were available at table games.
