LAS VEGAS (AP)  — Nevada gambling officials approved rules to limit customers, keep gamblers spaced apart from each other, and disinfect dice and cards when casinos reopen.

The Nevada Gaming Commission unanimously approved the guidelines on Thursday.

The commission did not act on a request from the casino workers' Culinary Union to incorporate the workers' suggested health guidelines and publicly release all re-opening plans submitted by casinos.
