Operators begin to reopen Las Vegas casinos
A number of US casino operators have begun to reopen their properties in Las Vegas, Nevada, after a period of temporary closure due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Casinos were forced to close on March 17 as the state sought to slow the spread of Covid-19, but Nevada governor Steve Sisolak last month set a target date of June 4 for casinos to resume activities in the state.
