Las Vegas: Casinos put safety first, but many guests ignore protocols Richard N. Velotta, Las Vegas Review-Journal · June 15, 2020 at 6:00 am Crowded elevators. Too many gamblers surrounding a craps table. Slot players side by side. Temperature checks for some patrons, but not others. The rollout of state-mandated health and safety rules varies by property. And, in many cases, guests are not socially distancing. “You can put all the stickers down that you want to keep people 6 feet away from each other and only put four people in an elevator … that’s not happening,” said Greg Mullen, vice president of CDC Consulting, which has had people attend 55 casino reopenings in 17 states. The state Gaming Control Board required a series of social distancing measures, including limited seating at table games, increased spacing between restaurant tables, and increased distances between slot players on the casino floor.
