Caesars Entertainment, owner of several Las Vegas resorts, has announced everyone indoors at its casinos will be required to wear masks at all times, except when eating and drinking.
The new policy went into effect on June 24, 2020 at noon.
Here’s a quote from the company’s CEO, Tony Rodio. “We are immediately requiring everyone in our properties to wear masks, because the scientific evidence strongly suggests that wearing masks and practicing social distancing may be the most important deterrents to spreading COVID-19 from person to person.”
According to Caesars Entertainment, anyone who refuses to wear a mask will be shown the door.
The new rule applies to all casinos operated by Caesars Entertainment across the country.
Don’t be surprised if other Las Vegas casinos follow suit, voluntarily or otherwise.
Update (6/25/20): MGM Resorts has followed suit, as expected. The actions of individual casinos is moot now, however. The Governor has mandated masks in all of Nevada whenever people leave their homes.
