LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A day after Governor Steve Sisolak officially announced he “feels confident” on June 4 as the date gaming operations can resume, a few Strip properties confirmed they will reopen their doors a week from Thursday.
Caesars Entertainment confirmed two of its gaming properties, Caesars Palace and Flamingo Las Vegas, will reopen June 4, and Wynn Resorts reiterated the same date for their hotel towers and casino.
Caesars Entertainment says both gaming and hospitality operations will resume at the properties on Thursday, June 4 after being closed for more than two months due to the state shutdown amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Additionally, Caesars Entertainment shared Wednesday it “anticipates that several retail and dining outlets along The LINQ Promenade, as well as the High Roller Observation Wheel, will reopen.”
Complying with physical distancing guidelines, both Caesars Palace and the Flamingo will offer lodging, dining options and access to their outdoor pools, as well as slot machines and table games. The company is suspending fees for paid self-parking in Las Vegas.
Caesars expects Harrah’s Las Vegas Hotel & Casino and the gaming floor at The LINQ Hotel & Casino to be the next properties on the Las Vegas Strip to reopen, if there is enough demand.
Caesars Palace and the Flamingo will implement its previously announced, enhanced health and safety protocols.
Wynn Resorts says both hotel towers and the casino, as well as all restaurants will reopen on June 4 as well. The resort’s newest restaurant, Elio, will open later in the month.
The company plans to offer guests “a complete Las Vegas experience by opening every amenity and outlet available.”

- Both Wynn and Encore hotel towers
- Two 24-hour casinos with a variety of table games and slots as well as the Race & Sports Book
