On Sunday, in a press conference, Steve Sisolak declared an additional three-week pause ensuring that the restrictions in Nevada’s casino is going to be stricter, and the additional restrictions for the casinos will be taking place from Tuesday. The industries may have to reduce their capacity further to 25% as the number of new coronavirus cases is soaring.
The number of infected cases is more than 2,000 for four days out of the last seven days, which is pretty alarming. The data has revealed that the state has entered into the red zone – highlighted by Gov. Sisolak. He wanted to reduce the infection rate by imposing more restrictions.
This time, the governor hasn’t gone for calling upon a statewide shutdown. Instead, he ordered for a pause for only three weeks and outlined that all the residents, as well as the visitors of Nevada, had to wear masks, and the businesses and other gathering areas must reduce the capacity to 25%. He especially concentrated on the bars and restaurants in the casinos, and the people there must maintain the regulations. He mentioned that the casinos, hotels, bars, and restaurants could be kept open with tight rules so that the country can avoid facing any economic recession.
Brin Gibson, the chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, elaborated that the return to the gaming floor, the people should successfully control the current spike in the cases. Virginia Valentine, the President of the Nevada Resort Association, pointed out that the Gov. had provided a careful thought, which would indeed help the state to deal with the cases.
