Boyd Gaming’s nine Las Vegas properties that are open received approval from the Nevada Gaming Control Board to return to 100 percent capacity in gaming areas. This includes The Orleans, Gold Coast, Suncoast, Aliante Casino, Sam’s Town, The Cannery, the California, Fremont, and Jokers Wild.

Masks are still required and all non-gaming areas remain at 80 percent capacity, in compliance with Clark County directives.

Boyd Gaming offered on-site vaccination centers for employees and paid vacation time to hourly employees who completed their recommended vaccine dosage.

The resorts join Wynn Las Vegas, Encore Las Vegas, Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the Strat, nine resorts from MGM Resorts, six resorts from Station Casinos, the Silverton, and nine Las Vegas casino floors from Caesars Entertainment, 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.

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.

Clark County, which is in charge of COVID-19 mitigation efforts, remains at 80 percent capacity, with the hope of expanding to 100 percent occupancy once 60 percent of residents receive a COVID-19 vaccine shot. The county reports 47 percent of eligible Clark County are vaccinated.
