When Nevada lifted its mask mandate on Thursday, Las Vegas business were quick to make changes to their policies. Twitter users shared videos of mandatory masking signage being removed from casinos, as most businesses appear to have immediately lifted mask requirements. One exception is Boyd, which operates Main Street Station, Fremont Hotel & Casino, and California Hotel and Casino. According to a notice shared on Twitter from VP & general manager Andre Filosi, team members who are not fully vaccinated will still be required to mask up.

The Gold Mine Tavern has taken a different approach. According to their social media posts, they’ll be offering a free beer or shot in exchange for guests turning in their masks.

“We’re celebrating like it’s the end of prohibition,” owner Sam Bonneville told the Las Vegas Review Journal. The deal runs through Monday.

Spokespeople from the Harry Reid International Airport, Lyft, and Uber all weighed in via the Review-Journal to remind visitors to Las Vegas not to throw away their masks, as both of the ride-sharing platforms are still requiring riders to wear masks. The airport and all public transportation still fall under federal mask mandates as well.
