Las Vegas Opening Back Up Following Coronavirus Closure
By Joey Tack on June 4, 2020
After nearly 12 weeks of closure, the casinos on the Las Vegas strip are opening up, some as early as today at 12:01am. According to our partners at KCRA3:
Hotel-casinos in suburban Las Vegas were the first to open at 12:01 a.m., to be followed later in the morning by a restart of the iconic Bellagio fountain and reopenings of several resorts on the Las Vegas Strip.
Wynn Resorts pushed back its planned opening to daylight hours in a nod to ongoing nighttime protests over George Floyd’s death in Minnesota. Floyd, a black man, died after a white officer pressed his knee into his neck.
