With coronavirus cases surging, Las Vegas bars won't be opening for at least two weeks

County leaders consider weekly benchmarks to help contain virus

LAS VEGAS – Las Vegans and tourists will have to wait at least two weeks to revisit their favorite watering holes

Nevada’s COVID-19 task force on Thursday voted to keep bars in Clark County, where Las Vegas is located, closed with limits on how many people can eat together at restaurants. 

"This is the population base for the state, this is the largest number of people, this is the economic backbone of the state," said task force chairman Caleb Cage. "This is an extremely important decision – and one that I think we need to take very cautiously." 

The task force wants to work with officials to enhance plans to increase compliance and enforcement to stem the spread of COVID-19, Cage said.
