Caesars and MGM return to full capacity as Las Vegas Covid-19 measures eased

| By Robert Fletcher
Caesars Entertainment and MGM Resorts International have become the latest operators to secure approval to return to full capacity at their land-based casinos in Las Vegas, Nevada, with social distancing measures also set to be eased.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) gave the all-clear to both operators to significantly ease novel coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions at their casinos in Las Vegas, with the properties now set to return to near-normal operations.

However, the easing of measures will only apply to the casino gaming floor, with all other areas of the properties still subject to 80% occupancy restrictions and three-feet social distancing policies.

Caesars will return to 100% fire code capacity, without social distancing, on the casino floor at Bally’s Las Vegas, Caesars Palace Las Vegas, The Cromwell, Flamingo Las Vegas, Harrah’s Las Vegas, The LINQ Hotel + Experience, Paris Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino and Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

Staff will still be required to wear masks at all times, while guests will also need to wear a mask unless smoking, eating or drinking. Guests who have been fully vaccinated can remove their masks when seated at any of the resorts’ pool areas.
