BELLAGIOThe Mayfair Supper Club temporarily closed on Wednesday after an employee who worked in the kitchen tested positive for COVID-19. A spokesperson for parent company MGM Reports tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the employee last worked on Sunday. The employee found out about the positive test result after reporting for work on Wednesday. “…Out of an abundance of caution, we are closing for the evening. We will be sanitizing the work area and determining who they may have come in contact with for both tracing and testing,” the company tells the newspaper. [LVRJ]

THE STRIPEl Segundo Sol at Fashion Show Mall, Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab at the Forum Shops at Caesars, and Mon Ami Gabi at Paris Las Vegas decided to get rid of an optional 4 percent surcharge that covered COVID-19 related expenses. Parent company Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises out of Chicago says the added cost of personal protection equipment, new sanitation practices, the rising price of food, and 50 percent occupancy forced the company to add the new surcharge. Now the Nevada Department of Taxation chimes in for other businesses that may add the charge, saying those surcharges are subject to taxation. “This additional fee added to the final selling price of retail sales appears to be a move to help recoup costs associated with added implementation expenses and other increased costs. Any business adding this fee is advised that this amount is subject to Nevada sales tax,” a new memo from the state notes. [Nevada Department of Taxation]

NEVADA — The Nevada Gaming Control Board revised its recommendations for casinos that reopen for business, saying that they must offer face masks or cloth face coverings for patrons who request one, and casinos should have signs throughout the establishment that tell patrons that face coverings are available. Customers who play table and card games must wear a face covering if there is no barrier, partition, or shield between the dealer and each player. The board notes that anyone within six feet of the table must also wear a mask. The board also says that musical performances, live entertainment, concerts, competitions, sporting events, and any events with live performances may resume, but have to remain closed for public attendance, and the board must approve events before they take place. Last Friday, the Fremont Street Experience announced the return of its free live shows, then walked that back after a call from the governor’s office. [Nevada Gaming Control Board]
