The Nevada Gaming Control Board noticed all licensees today that those who choose to continue operations at this time must follow the following rules:

  • There may be no more than three chairs at each table game.
  • Each gaming machine must be cleaned and sanitized at least once every two hours.
  • Patrons may not serve themselves from buffets that remain open. Similarly, employees may not serve themselves in employee dining areas.
  • The gaming floor and other public areas of a licensee's property must operate under the latest social distancing guidance from Nevada's medical advisory team.

Further, the Board confirmed its earlier direction that licensees are expected to comply with the Interim Guidance for Coronavirus Disease 2019, issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Licensees must also:

  • Perform routine environmental cleaning in accordance with the CDC's Environmental Cleaning and Disinfection Recommendations.
  • Actively encourage sick employees to stay home, emphasize respiratory etiquette, and hand hygiene.
  • Advise employees before traveling to check the CDC's Information for Travel.
  • Ensure that an Infectious Disease Outbreak Response Plan, as described in the CDC's Interim Guidance, is in place.
