New Dining Protocols for Casinos

To combat the spread of COVID-19, the Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) created a new set of health and safety protocols for casinos with dining establishments.

The guidelines from the NGCB state that in order for restaurants to reopen, there must be an entrance into the establishment that doesn’t pass through the casino floor. Likewise, bathrooms accessible from inside the restaurant are the only facilities permitted for use by patrons. These new guidelines prohibit many of the restaurants in casinos on the Strip from reopening.

Station Casinos will test employees for the novel coronavirus before they’re allowed to return to work. Restaurant patrons will have their temperature checked prior to entering the establishment. The company’s new gaming health and sanitation guidelines state that anyone with a body temperature higher than 100.4 degrees fahrenheit will not be allowed inside.

Over the course of the next month, Station Casinos will gradually reopen its properties. However, company representatives have noted that some casino properties, like the Palms, will remain closed until an evaluation is made on whether opening too soon would be financially detrimental.
