Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak announced the state will move into Phase 2 of our state-specific plan to re-open, Nevada United: Roadmap to Recovery, on June 1, 2020.

“Nevada is entering Phase 2 of reopening and our gaming properties are on track to reopen as of June 4, as we gradually and cautiously return to a new normal, while continuing to take strong mitigation measures against COVID-19,” said Gov. Sisolak. “Nevada is a premier travel destination, and will always be a warm and welcoming spot for visitors. We have strong systems in place to help protect Nevadans and our visitors, but continue to urge all those who have tested positive and not yet recovered or who are exhibiting symptoms to avoid travel to the State at this time. We look forward to welcoming back all of the tourists who love Nevada as much as we do in the safest and most responsible way possible.”
