Las Vegas is positioning itself for a long painful recovery.
               Las Vegas is ready to work with the Biden administration on policies that can be implemented within the president’s first 100 days in office. While these efforts could help economic revivals in tourism-dependent cities like Las Vegas, the USTA acknowledged roadblocks to recovery, including a potential new federal mandate that would require COVID-19 testing for domestic flights.
               The U.S. Travel Association is ready to kick-start the recovery of the travel industry, which has so far suffered more than $500 billion in pandemic-related losses.  Dealing with COVID being the primary USTA concern.  The USTA and LVCVA, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, are supportive of the requirement to test folks coming in internationally, (but) think the domestic approach would be very dangerous.

               USTA officials believe additional testing requirements for travelers within the U.S. would be “problematic." Testing for domestic flights would be difficult to implement and enforce. The organization estimates that such a requirement would necessitate a 42 percent increase in the nation’s daily testing capacity.
               The high cost and low availability of testing makes this concept unworkable and could hurt Las Vegas’ economic recovery efforts.
               The current Travel industry’s recovery timeline is estimated to be five years before it reaches pre-pandemic levels, which for Las Vegas is “far too long.”
