Las Vegas is a popular tourist stop, and people are drawn to it’s popular attraction, The Las Vegas Strip. However, due to Coronavirus, things are going to be a little different this year. Lots of these attractions have been closed in part due to the owners trying to stop the spread of the virus and also from Governor Sisolak’s closure of business in the spring of 2020. Recently, The Strip has started to slowly open its doors and move forward in a way that’s safe for everyone.

Although things are opening back up, there are things that just won’t be opened. Bars will be indefinitely closed to aid stopping the spread of coronavirus. On the other hand, a handful of resorts and restaurants will be open. Some of these include Aria, Delano, Mandalay Bay, Luxor, and much more. Most of what is open is different from how it was before, and it is important to check the website to keep up with what is open within the resort.

Being open does not mean that there still isn’t a risk of contracting the virus. There are rules to follow if people wish to keep themselves and others safe. Rules include wearing a face covering at all times within the resort or restaurant. Also, making sure to stay six feet away from others to lessen the risk of contamination is another rule. It’s not required to, but to stay safe, people should sanitize their hands regularly and avoid touching their faces or others.

The Las Vegas Strip can once again be a popular tourist stop and have the streets bursting with life. It’s a slow reopen, but with time, things will be back to the way they are supposed to be, and people will be able to enjoy The Strip together. Las Vegas can draw in a lot more people now that The Strip is opening back up, and people can have fun there even during this global pandemic.
