Las Vegas Casinos to Open again at 12:01 a.m. Thursday

LAS VEGAS — After 58 days of historic quiet, cards will be cut, dice will roll and jackpots can jingle again at 12:01 a.m. Thursday in casinos in Las Vegas and Nevada.

There will be big splashes — even amid ongoing protests over the death of a man in police custody in Minnesota that resulted in tear gas on the neon-lit Las Vegas Strip. There are big hopes for recovery from an unprecedented and expensive shutdown prompted by the coronavirus pandemic.

Officials are balancing health concerns against the economic loss of billions of dollars per month in gambling revenue and 475,000 newly unemployed workers.
