LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Caesars Entertainment says its nine Las Vegas properties will return to 100% capacity on casino floors, becoming the latest company to announce the return to full capacity at the approval of the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

Caesars properties moving to 100% fire code capacity, without social distancing, are:
- Bally's Las Vegas
- Caesars Palace Las Vegas
- The Cromwell
- Flamingo Las Vegas
- Harrah's Las Vegas
- The LINQ Hotel + Experience
- Paris Las Vegas
- Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino
- Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino
MGM Resorts International, the Strat and the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas all made similar announcements previously.
The change comes through a Nevada Gaming Control Board waiver which allows casinos to increase capacity, if approved, depending on steps taken to vaccinate their workforce.
Most businesses in Clark County are operating at 80% capacity. That limit was set by county commissioners in April and took effect on May 1, when the state transitioned power of COVID-19 mitigation efforts to local authorities.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board waiver allows for increased capacity and reduced social distancing on casino floors only.
