Just when you thought we were recovering from the pandemic, they pull you back in. Such is the case in Nevada, as Las Vegas Covid vaccinations may become a requirement to get into a casino, show, or event.
Harrah’s Casino in New Orleans recently became the first in America to demand proof of a Coronavirus vaccination before they will let people through their doors. Now, some shows and events in Vegas are following their lead. And the World Series of Poker now has their own set of Covid rules which have some players considering whether it’s even worth the risk.
Harrah’s down in New Orleans is the first casino in the country to require proof of a COVID vaccination or negative COVID test results before they will even let you in the doors! And while Nevada is a long way from Louisiana, Harrah’s casino is owned by Caesar’s Entertainment, who (as we all know) owns a few casinos in Las Vegas. This news comes after the mayor of New Orleans issued a vaccination requirement for most indoor activities… not just casinos. But it does beg the question: Could there be a similar Las Vegas Covid vaccinations mandate eventually? And of course, that answer is: Yeah!
Believe it or not some shows and events in Las Vegas are already requiring your proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test before they’ll admit you! And while no casinos have issued such a requirement yet, it is being discussed. The governor of Nevada says he does not want to put more rules and restrictions in place, but he’s not ruling out a Las Vegas Covid vaccinations rule. And while we wait to find out what happens with Las Vegas casinos, the World Series of Poker is already taking action.
New WSOP COVID rules will be in effect when the event returns to the Rio at the end of next month. Rules so strict, in fact, that some players are saying they might not even show up to play! Players who test positive for COVID (or refuse to be tested at all) will be eliminated from the event and their buy-ins will not be refunded! And check this out: If a player is sitting next to someone who tests positive for COVID they can be eliminated as well!
Yes, believe it or not, if the player sitting next to you tests positive for COVID and you are not fully vaccinated well, your happy ass is gone too! Of course, if you are fully vaccinated they’ll let you stay… you know, so long as you keep testing negative! If a player is eliminated from an event for testing positive for COVID, well, they could still receive some prize money if they finish high enough up, of course.
