Caesars Entertainment has revealed that it will resume gaming and hospitality operations in Las Vegas at its Caesars Palace and Flamingo properties once state officials give operators the green light.
All of Caesars’ nine Las Vegas properties have been closed since 17 March, as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Both Caesars Palace and the Flamingo will offer lodging, dining options and access to outdoor pools, as well as slot machines and table games, all operated in compliance with physical distancing guidelines. Several retail and dining outlets along its Linq promenade, and its High Roller Observation Wheel, will also reopen in phase one.
Phase two will then see Harrah’s Las Vegas and the gaming floor at the Linq Hotel & Casino follow, with the timings of these reopenings to be dictated by customer demand.
“Reopening Las Vegas in a phased approach will be a significant milestone for Caesars Entertainment as the country continues to emerge from this necessary closure period,” Caesars chief executive Tony Rodio said.
