Closing Las Vegas



March 18, 2020

Las Vegas comes to a close

  The last time Las Vegas casinos closed - was for John F. Kennedy’s funeral on Nov. 25, 1963.

Nevada governor Steve Sisolak (D) ordered a statewide, monthlong freeze on gambling, shutting down everything from casinos to slot machines found in convenience stores, cutting off an industry that fuels the state's tourism and hospitality-powered economy, per the AP.

 Sisolak's broad directive also includes the monthlong closure of non-essential businesses like bars, movie theaters, and gyms at noon Wednesday. Restaurants must close their dining rooms and only offer takeout or delivery.

"This is affecting the lives of our citizens. People are dying. Every day that is delayed here, I'm losing a dozen people on the back end that are going to die as a result of this,” Sisolak said Tuesday night. His order follows similar moves by more than 10 other governors as states scramble to mitigate the risk of exposure to COVID-19. 

The governor gave thousands of businesses in Las Vegas less than a day to prepare.
