LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - First it was buffets. Then it was shows and clubs. Now it's entire hotels that are closing in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Wynn Resorts Ltd announced on Sunday that both the Wynn and Encore resorts will be shutting their doors effective Teusday night at 6pm. The closure is scheduled to last 14 days.

The full closure was the final domino to fall for Wynn, which had previously announced that it was cancelling large gatherings, buffets, clubs, racebooks and and sportsbooks.

All full-time Wynn Las Vegas and Encore employees will continue to be paid during the shutdown, and a limited number of employees and management will remain at the properties to secure and maintain the facility.
