This Industry Notice amends the “Health and Safety Policies for the Resumption of Gaming Operations: Nonrestricted Licensees,” amends the “Health and Safety Policies for the Resumption of Gaming Operations: Restricted Licensees,” and supersedes Industry Notices #2020-25, #2020-30, and #2020-43 for purposes of the policies for nonrestricted and restricted licensees.

To meet its obligation under section 35 of Governor Sisolak’s Declaration of Emergency Directive 021, the Board reissues the following:

Health and Safety Policies for the Resumption of Gaming Operations: Nonrestricted Licensees
Health and Safety Policies for the Resumption of Gaming Operations: Restricted Licensees
Substantive updates to the Policies are as follows:

 All licensees: Pursuant to Governor Sisolak’s Emergency Directive 024, licensees shall ensure that all
patrons and guests properly utilize face coverings, subject to guidelines in the Directive (page 4).
 All licensees: Please note that section 7(3) of Emergency Directive 024 only deems a face shield a
sufficient face covering if the individual has a medical reason as to why he or she cannot wear a face
mask or cloth face covering.
 Nonrestricted licensees: There is no longer an exception from the face covering requirement at table
games that have barriers or partitions between the dealer and each player.

In conjunction with state and local health officials, the Board will continue to ensure that best practices are used in the mitigation of COVID-19, and its effect on the resumption of gaming operations, and will issue further notices as appropriate.
