LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Culinary Union has launched a new website while Nevada casinos continue to reopen starting June 4.

After months of advocating for increased transparency, the Culinary Union said it was pleased that most major gaming companies have posted their COVID-19 safety plans on their public-facing websites.

The Culinary Union will continue to add information about casinos as they reopen, and the site will be updated frequently to document each property’s progress.
