All casinos should stop working by noon on March 18th.
In Las Vegas, for the first time since the assassination of former US President John F. Kennedy, all casinos are closed due to the coronavirus. This was stated by State Governor Steve Sisolak, according to Las Vegas Sun.
According to him, all entertainment facilities of the US state of Nevada will be closed for 30 days, including a casino in Las Vegas, as well as bars, cinemas, fitness clubs, and shopping centers. All institutions should stop working by noon on March 18th. It is noted that the last time a casino in Las Vegas was closed on November 25, 1963 in connection with the funeral of the murdered US President John F. Kennedy. “We must no doubt take this step for the health and safety of Nevada residents. Please stay home,” Sisolak said. To date, more than 50 cases of coronavirus infection have been identified in Nevada.
