Restaurants in Nevada's casinos are now permitted to reopen for business, the Nevada Gaming Control Board has said.
Most restaurants in the state were permitted to open for dine-in services with social distancing from May 9, under the first phase of the state governor's reopening plan. But Nevada's casinos remain shut under the state's social distancing guidelines.
The casino restaurants will have to comply with the same industry-specific guidance the governor set forth for food establishments, the board said in a notice sent on Thursday.
Restaurants will need to inform the board “whether there is a separate entrance for the restaurant, apart from any entrance to the restaurant off the gaming floor," according to the notice.
"If there is not a separate entrance for the restaurant, the licensee must articulate to the Board how it will ensure that patrons are only able to enter the restaurant from inside the property without traversing the gaming floor," it added.
If there is no restroom inside the premises, restaurants will have to outline how customers can use a bathroom outside of the restaurant without stepping onto the casino's gaming floor.
The business will also need to provide a plan on how it will prevent customers from congregating outside of the restaurant prior to entering, if they are located in a county with a population of more than 100,000.
