LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - The Tropicana Hotel and Casino announced that it will be reopening on Thursday, after having been closed since mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The hotel's owners had previously announced that they had planned to open on September 1st but that got pushed back by a couple of weeks.

Team members and vendors will be required to wear masks and will undergo temperature checks prior to their shift.

Based on the mandate by Nevada Governor, Steve Sisolak, and in order to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, Tropicana Las Vegas will be requiring all persons in public areas to wear a mask covering the face and nose. Patrons may remove masks temporarily while eating or drinking or when asked by casino staff for identification. Guests not adhering to these requirements will be advised of the requirements and warned that if they continue to disregard, they will be asked to leave the property.

Slot machines and table games will be thoroughly and regularly cleaned throughout the day.

Sanitizer stations are installed on the casino floor and be readily available throughout the property.

Like all other hotels that have opened since the green light was given back on June 4th, there will be changes in place to abide by coronavirus guidelines set up by Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak. Those include, 

 - Gaming floor capacity will be limited to no more than 50% of the maximum occupancy.

 - The installation of floor decals and signage to strictly enforce social distancing guidelines in areas where lines typically form.

 - Gaming machines will be configured to meet social distancing requirements.

 - Live music, entertainment, convention, and banquet services will remain suspended per state guidelines.

 - There will be no large drawings, tournaments, or special events.

 - Restaurant offerings will include Starbucks and a limited menu from Trop & Go.

 - Valet will be closed at this time. 

 - The spa (limited offerings) and the pool will be open.

Also, the Oyo Hotel (formerly the Hooters Hotel) just east of the Trop on Tropicana Avenue announced that they would be opening up on Wednesday, also with limited services.
