Forget Covid, the Las Vegas Strip is Facing a Growing Health Crisis

On March 17, 2020, the mandate to close all non-essential businesses in Nevada was handed down by Gov. Steve Sisolak. The coronavirus scare had become a reality and the horror of the moment was starting to settle in.

It was the first time in more than 50 years that all of the state’s casinos were closed. This had not happened since the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963.

After the 9/11 terrorist attacks and during the Great Recession when the tourism business in Las Vegas was hit hard, the casinos remained open at all times.
