Poker Rooms are Returning to Normal
NO MASKS and NO PLEXIGLASS.. Poker players are starting to look each other in the eye again.
The plexiglass dividers that have been a staple of Las Vegas poker rooms during the coronavirus pandemic have come down this week at several casinos after they were approved to return to 100 percent capacity by the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
Poker rooms that have removed the plexiglass include the Caesars Entertainment properties (Bally’s, Caesars Palace, Flamingo and Planet Hollywood Resort); MGM Resorts properties (Aria, Bellagio and MGM Grand); Station Casinos properties (Boulder Station, Red Rock Resort and Santa Fe Station); and Wynn Las Vegas (room located in Encore).
The Golden Nugget, South Point and The Venetian still have plexiglass in place.
The removal of plexiglass dividers signals a return to normalcy for poker in Las Vegas after it was upended along with most other pastimes by the pandemic.
