This week's gambling news focuses on the recovery of Las Vegas, as they had been pushing forward at break neck speed... that is, until the Delta variant hit! Now the situation has changed, and casino workers are required to wear masks once again. How will this affect tourists in Las Vegas? And are more restrictions coming?


The new COVID Delta variant has started popping up all over the place, and sin city is ground zero for a new wave of the virus. And while Las Vegas is still open… for now… some of the restrictions are also making a comeback. Las Vegas casino employees are now required once again to wear a face mask… even if they are fully vaccinated. And members of the Nevada Gaming Control Board are going to be out and about making sure this mandate is being enforced.

And it’s not just for casino employees, oh no. Anyone in Las Vegas working indoors and around the public, whether it’s in a store or a restaurant or a bar or whatever, is required to mask up. But what does this mean for you if you’re planning to visit Las Vegas? Right now, as I film this in late July, it doesn’t mean anything. Tourists visiting Las Vegas are not required to wear a mask. Nor are there any social distancing or capacity limits currently in place. But we all know that could change at any time, so be sure to call ahead before you make your reservations.

Despite this setback, however, many industry experts still believe that a full Las Vegas recovery will happen by the year 2023! And hey, that’s a full year sooner than they were predicting just a few months ago. So you see, it’s not all bad news this week.
