LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - While several Las Vegas hotel operators have made public their plans for reopening resorts in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, employees at one Valley resort got a call telling them they wouldn't be welcomed back.

As first reported by the website, a large number of employees at the J.W. Marriott/Rampart Casino in Summerlin found out they were out of a job after answering their phones and hearing a recorded message from one of the resort's executives.

It's not known how many people lost their jobs. The resort employed around 1,700. 

Governor Steve Sisolak has made it clear that casinos will be one of the last venues opened in Nevada's 4-phase 'Roadmap To Recovery'. Phase 1 of the recovery began last Saturday.
