LAS VEGAS (AP) — MAY 26 UPDATE: The Nevada Gaming Control Board held a virtual workshop on Tuesday morning to talk about what Nevada casinos will be doing when they reopen. READ MORE HERE.

Nevada gambling regulators are calling casino companies to a health and safety workshop next week aimed at sharpening rules for reopening the state’s shuttered gambling establishments.

With no opening date currently set, the meeting that the Nevada Gaming Control Board scheduled for Tuesday morning could help show when Gov. Steve Sisolak plans to lift his mid-March order that stopped gambling in Nevada and closed casinos to prevent groups from gathering and spreading coronavirus.

A control board statement said regulators are working to determine how reopening will occur and the governor will determine when.
