Nevada: Sisolak to order statewide closure of non-essential businesses, including casinos, following in footsteps of other states Megan Messerly, Riley Snyder, and Jackie Valley, Nevada Independent · March 17, 2020 at 7:15 pm Gov. Steve Sisolak is expected to announce Tuesday evening the closure of non-essential businesses, including casinos, across the state of Nevada, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation. In addition to casinos, non-essential businesses that will be affected by the closure include restaurants, bars, gyms, salons and malls, though restaurants will still provide takeout and delivery service, but no in-restaurant dining will be allowed. Essential businesses, including grocery stores, will be allowed to remain open. Already, several major casino resort companies have decided to temporarily shutter operations until April, including MGM Resorts, The Cosmopolitan, Wynn Resorts and the Las Vegas Sands. Others, including Station Casinos and Boyd Gaming, have opted to remain open while implementing social distancing requirements mandated by the governor and CDC.
