Nevada gaming regulators say casino restaurants are allowed to reopen, with restrictions Riley Snyder, The Nevada Independent · May 15, 2020 at 10:59 am Nevada gaming regulators are giving restaurants inside still-shuttered casino properties the green light to reopen, with some significant restrictions still in place. The Nevada Gaming Control Board issued a notice to the state’s licensed casino gaming industry on Thursday night outlining the steps needed for a restaurant inside a casino to reopen. The state’s gaming industry was not included in Gov. Steve Sisolak’s Phase 1 reopening plan, though restaurants and other retail stores are now allowed to operate limited in-person services with strict social distancing measures in place. The notice says any restaurant inside a casino can reopen if it follows the industry-specific guideline previously released by the state, as well as following several other directives.
