LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Pursuant to Gov. Steve Sisolak’s Declaration of Emergency Directive 021 issued on May 28, the Nevada Gaming Control Board has implemented and enforced its Health and Safety Policies for Reopening after Temporary Closure since Governor Sisolak authorized the resumption of gaming operations on June 4, 2020.
Since June 4, 2020, the Enforcement Division of the Board has conducted 1,453 inspections and observations of nonrestricted licensees and 6,008 inspections and observations of restricted licensees.
Those observations and inspections have resulted in the opening of 111 regulatory cases statewide, relating to noncompliance with the Board’s Health and Safety Policies.
Pursuant to subsections 4 and 6 of NRS 463.120, any information prepared or obtained by the Board relating to a licensee’s compliance with the Health and Safety Policies is confidential.
“Pursuant to the authority granted to the Board in section 35 of Emergency Directive 021, the Board has worked 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to monitor gaming licensees’ compliance with the Board’s Health and Safety Policies,” said James Taylor, Chief of Enforcement.
Additionally, the Board is working in conjunction with Nevada OSHA, Clark County Business License Department, and the City of Las Vegas Business License Department to monitor and enforce gaming licensees’ compliance with the Governor’s Directives and the Board Health & Safety Policies.
“The Gaming Control Board is committed to work with our state and local partners to enforce Governor Sisolak’s Emergency Directives and the Board’s Health and Safety Policies. Non-compliance with federal, state, local laws, or the Health and Safety Policies constitute a violation of Nevada Gaming Commission Regulation 5.011, which may result in the Board taking disciplinary action against a non-compliant licensee,” said Chairwoman Sandra Douglass Morgan.
