Well, here we go in sin city.

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Gov. Steve Sisolak has announced the closure of nonessential businesses effective as of noon March 18. Nonessential businesses include places like bars, clubs, movie theaters, hair salons and barbershops, nail and tanning salons. It also includes casinos and all gaming machines, which must be shut down by midnight tonight.

I can tell you from first hand knowledge here, a lot of local business owners will not comply.

I'm still reading up on info, so not much more to say, other than this should be interesting.

If you say biz owners won’t comply.

What type of ramifications are being set in place?

Police state?

It was literally just announced an hour ago, I don't see any responses from the governors office to such questions.

I doubt Las Vegas metro would enforce such things, but Henderson PD have nothing better to do than roll around and harass people, so Henderson might see a crackdown, but it's not likely.

I'm guessing it will be more of a suggestion than official order, but I think it will be a written E.O.

The info on that still isn't out either.

NV native here. My mother is a casino worker and is officially unemployed as of tonight.

Smaller business owners like mom and pops may not comply, but some of the big ones already have.

I just relocated back to NV a few weeks ago to start a new job and that has already frozen on me.

Honestly this is getting pretty ridiculous.

We have, I believe, gone so far to one side that the effect on everyone(economically) would be 10 fold even the worst case scenario of this pandemic.

In an attempt to "save humanity" you may gut it to the point that when the clouds clear, there isn't anything left for the survivors.

Yeah, big casinos won't really have a choice, many on the strip already started closing themselves. Local casino's likely to follow suit. It's the local gaming bars that likely won't comply. I already have my "speak-easy" spot set up hehe.

My job isn't even customer service, dining, or entertainment/ gaming related. Contact with other people is very minimal. And it's a little bit important, yeah.

I'm having a real hard time wrapping my head around this nonsense. I can understand closing the big resorts to discourage tourism and traveling right now but..

The mass hysteria is far more damaging than the virus. You may have your speakeasy, but how many are going to be rioting in 2 weeks when they run out of toilet rolls and can't pay their rent?

I'd assume they would have pressure put on them through fines and the threat of pulling gaming licenses.

No physical force required.

I noticed that brothels are not on the list.

Priorities, right?

I tend to agree, be that as it may, it is one hell of a response, economically closing sectors of the economy, with the fact that 75% of Americans roughly work paycheck to paycheck what is the logic? 🤷‍♂️

Florida governor ordered bars and clubs to be closed, but says traditional restaurants can stay open just fine. According to the school district, schools closed until April 15th.

Lots of fun time to spend with the kids before asteroids Swiss cheese the Earth.

That may very well be the entire point.


Having lived through the Swine Flu, H1N1, and HIV/AIDS epidemics/pandemics, the former two more easily transmitted, the latter, far more deadly, than COVID, the world-wide response we are experiencing is astounding,

But what is even more mind-blowing is the seemingly official enthusiastic willingness to take unprecedented actions guaranteed to essentially “crash” the the world’s economy.

In light of what has gone before, I simply have no explanation for what we are seeing now; and of what might be to come....boggles the mind!

A few big shots retiring, casinos closing, schools closing for the rest of the school year, government wants to give people money to spend and cities starting to tell the people to shelter in place, all this over a virus?

Nothing to see here.

The funny thing is they give a less than 24hr heads up and now everything is flooded with crowds and lines. Just went to 3 different dispensaries and they all had lines around the building. So now places that usually have 10-20 people max at a time are mobbed...great infection control Nevada...great...

Same has been true with grocery stores all week and drug stores and Wal-Mart's and all that stuff. So now they've created more crowds by spreading the panic. So what are we going to do next year at flu season when this goes into the rotation of viruses you can catch? Lock down again? I totally understand closing casinos and events and the likes because crowds are bad during this...and I am out of work because I work live events. Its the lockdowns and business closures of every day places...that # causes panic. The hype and media are causing the panic as well as the opposite of reducing crowds...and the politicans are playing right into it.

I predict the suicides in the wake of this economic catastrophe will likely dwarf COVID-19 deaths.

Technically, Las Vegas doesn't exist right now. Supermarkets are bare of food. No one has a job right now, basically.

This is city zero, literally, for how things will shake out. There are only four roads in and out of here and even if you could get out, where ya gonna go? Hundreds of miles of desert that doesn't have any food.

I expect this to go very badly. This is a city of movement, action, craziness. I expect the crazy within two weeks. You can't confine this city.

I really hope I'm wrong.

I'm pretty sure this is SHTF. This is not only for 30 days. This is the new normal, and it's going to get pretty spooky.

People are already getting robbed outside grocery stores here. Crime is going to skyrocket.

Anybody who can't see what's happening is, quite frankly, naive.

Trust me their opens. Let's just say I went inspecting the town, and found some surprisingly social places were open for business.
