Masks remain required inside Boyd's properties, according to a company spokesperson, and all non-gaming areas are currently at 80% capacity, in compliance with current government directives.

Boyd Gaming says it was commended by the gaming control board for its ongoing efforts to assist team members and their families in the vaccination process. And that the company also shares the state of Nevada’s and Clark County’s commitment to getting as many local residents vaccinated as possible.

Boyd representatives say they will continue to do their part to encourage all Nevada residents to get vaccinated.
