LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Additional cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed on the Las Vegas Strip.
Thursday, a Caesars Entertainment spokesperson confirmed two COVID-19 positive cases at the Flamingo hotel-casino, along with contact tracing protocols being implemented.
Casinos in Nevada reopened their doors to the public on June 4 with new safety protocols in place during the ongoing pandemic, but positive cases have since been reported.
Wednesday, MGM Resorts confirmed an employee working in the kitchen at the Mayfair Supper Club at the Bellagio hotel-casino had tested positive for COVID-19 with the restaurant closing as a precaution.
Caesars representatives did not immediately say if the two cases at the Flamingo property were guests or workers.
Health officials say the time between exposure of the virus and experiencing the onset of symptoms takes an average of 5 to 6 days, but it also can be up to 14 days.
