Nevada’s Governor, Steve Sisolak, announced yesterday that the state’s casinos will begin reopening next week. The Governor expressed confidence that the institutions would observe social distancing guidelines and urged Nevadans to wear facial coverings “like a badge of honor.”
Additionally, Mr. Sisolak stated that in-person religious services of up to 50 people could start Friday and that places like shopping malls, bars, movie theaters and gyms could open with some restrictions.
As Nevada had the highest unemployment rate of any state last month at 28.2% (almost double the national average of 14.7%), this re-opening announcement could provide a big economic boost to the state’s economy amid the coronavirus’ burgeoning economic fallout, given that the 24 casinos on the Las Vegas Strip earned over $72 million (US) in fiscal 2017, according to the Center for Gaming Research.
This easing of restrictions allows Hi-Tek to continue with their interrupted discussions and presentations in a variety of channels including casinos and hotels, both for the Omni Veil network (powered by iSIGN technology and hardware), but for SAM as well.
