Masks Required At Casino Table Games In Nevada

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada casinos are now requiring gamblers and spectators to wear protective face coverings at table games that have no barriers.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board on Wednesday updated its health and safety policy required for the reopening of casinos, tightening rules for gamblers sitting down to play. The new rule applies to players of blackjack, roulette, craps, poker and other table games and all casino employees.

Masks aren't required of other casino patrons, including slot machine players, but casinos are required to offer and encourage masks. Casinos across the state began reopening June 4 after being closed since March to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
