Las Vegas Casino Employee Virus Testing Plan To Start Thursday

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Testing for the new coronavirus is due to start Thursday for the first of tens of thousands of Las Vegas casino employees being tapped for job callbacks before resorts reopen.

State gambling regulators have not given the go-ahead or a date for the lifting the closure of all gambling establishments in Nevada.

But several casino companies, tourism, hospital and union officials announced Tuesday that testing will start with scheduled appointments for notified employees at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
