Maybe we’re moving toward recovery too fast? Maybe, as the Clark County Commission has decided it’s time for Las Vegas casino workers to mask-up again. They voted to reinstate masks for employees only (for now) while they are on duty indoors at casinos, stores, and clubs.
Actually, it;s not completely accurate to lay this decision on the Commission exclusively. They made this move after several casinos decided on their own to place mask mandates on their employees. In fact, the Venetian has returned to mandatory weekly testing of employees.
This decision was somewhat predictable, given the recent rise in Coronavirus cases in and around the city… especially the highly contagious delta variant. The mandate stops short of a full mask mandate that would apply to tourists on the Strip and casinos.
The new mask rules will be enforced regardless of the Vegas casino workers vaccination status, and the Nevada Gaming Control Board said they will be out inspecting to ensure the mandate is being complied with.
