Six properties from Station Casinos join the ranks of Las Vegas gaming companies that can reopen their casino floors at 100 percent. The Nevada Gaming Control Board granted permission to Red Rock Resort, Green Valley Ranch, Palace Station, Boulder Station, Sunset Station, and Santa Fe Station, effective immediately.

Station Casinos opened vaccination clinics at each of its properties in early April, and continues its internal vaccination efforts and vaccination awareness campaign throughout May and into the summer. The company will make vaccines available at its properties, and continues its partnership with Clark County by providing a drive-through vaccination clinic at the temporarily closed Texas Station.

The waiver only applies to gaming floors. Restaurants, pools, and other non-gaming areas still adhere to Clark County’s mandate with 80 percent occupancy restrictions and three feet of social distancing. Masks are still mandated statewide.

The resorts join Wynn Las Vegas, Encore Las Vegas, Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the Strat, and nine resorts from MGM Resorts, which all received approval to expand to 100 percent capacity. The Nevada Gaming Control Board says that individual resort properties can waive their county’s occupancy rates by applying directly to the board.

Clark County limits capacity to 80 percent until at least 60 percent of the 1.8 million residents are vaccinated.
