Casino Nevada casinos closed through April per Governor's orders April 2, 2020 By Tim Poole Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak effectively closed the state’s casinos through the end of April by issuing a “Stay at Home” directive. Sisolak’s decree comes after some Las Vegas Strip casinos had been offering guests hotel rates for 17 April later. Sisolak said: “Today’s ‘Stay at Home’ directive strengthens the imperative that Nevadans must not leave their homes for nonessential activities in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This directive builds on previous directives around school closures, social distancing, closure of nonessential businesses, and bans on public gatherings of 10 or more people by requiring you stay at home unless leaving is absolutely necessary.” Sisolak originally declared all nonessential Nevada businesses to be closed through 16 April. Caesars is among the companies to offer rates for dates as early as the start of May, which is the earliest that Nevada casinos could potentially open.
