Easing of COVID-19 restrictions has begun in Las Vegas.
Under the latest plans detailed by Gov. Steve Sisolak recently, they will allow casino operators in Nevada to increase their capacity to 35% from February 15 and expand to 50% percent on March 15.
With many industries looking ahead to spring and the summer hoping that tourism numbers will return this will be welcomed news across the board.
World of Concrete is set to return to Las Vegas this year and will be taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Centre in June. There are still hopes that the expected crowd of around 50,00 attendees will attend the very popular event.
Like casino operators, restauranteurs and bar owners will now be able to increase their capacity to 35% from February 15 from their current 25% restriction.
Many operators may seem this to be an odd number to raise their capacity to? Surely it would have been a more manageable number for maintaining the guidelines at 50% and still keeping table reservations to a maximum of four? Especially considering the mounting pressure already on restaurateurs and bar owners in the current climate.
Also, there will be no capacity limits on outdoor dining, the maximum party size will be raised from four to six people, and reservations no longer will be required.
Hopefully, this is the beginning of the end for COVID?!
