LAS VEGAS – The pandemic has turned Nevada’s leading tourist destinations into deserts of uncertainty.

No one can say when COVID-19 will loosen its grip or when the economy may rebound, but everyone longs for the day when it can go as quietly as it came and vacations can resume.

State gambling regulators have not given a preliminary action or date to revoke Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak’s closure order, but casino companies are developing recovery plans – many targeting June 1.

Many even accept reservations.

Here’s what we know about how hotel casinos are starting to reopen in Nevada. RGJ will update this list as more information becomes available:
