We have been updating this article to provide the latest details about Atlantic City in June, accurate to the date of publishing. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy says he hopes to permit Atlantic City’s casinos to reopen in time for the Fourth of July holiday but warned that restrictions and changes in how casinos operate will be needed.
While, as of May 2nd, no official announcement has been made as to when Atlantic City’s casinos will reopen, Las Vegas casinos may give some clues to what customers and employees can expect here once plans are formulated to reopen the resort’s casinos.
The local Las Vegas news is usually a waste of time for me. They typically have 3-5 minutes of local news before going to national news, weather and human interest stories. I don’t watch the local news often because 95% isn’t interesting to me. Don’t get me wrong – I love that I live in a sleepy town like Las Vegas. (Unbelievably, we still have a number of weekly items to share, including details today about the casino players club updates.)
It was April Fool’s Day last week and thankfully nobody was making bad jokes. Unfortunately, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak made another announcement. He extended the non-essential business closures through the month of April. As of now, the big Vegas News is that the soonest Las Vegas casinos may be able to re-open will be May 1. Of course, that could change again by the time this is posted on Sunday.

Las Vegas is essentially shutdown to slow the spread of coronavirus. You know that by now so I won’t rehash what’s going on. We have a few updates on the business side of things as well as information about how the different players clubs will be affected by the shutdown.
This will be a bit of a different Vegas News since there isn’t much happening in Las Vegas right now. COVID-19 is spreading across the country and just about everything fun in Las Vegas (and the world) is shut down. The week didn’t start off so stark.
Coronavirus is now a national emergency. As you’d imagine, the travel and live entertainment industries are getting crushed since people are trying to stay away from each other. Las Vegas is a vacation and entertainment town and there’s a lot happening…and not happening.
