Nevada Gaming Control Board continues health and safety inspections

28 July 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Pursuant to Governor Steve Sisolak’s Declaration of Emergency Directive 021 issued on May 28, 2020, the Nevada Gaming Control Board has implemented and enforced its Health and Safety Policies for Reopening after Temporary Closure since Governor Sisolak authorized the resumption of gaming operations on June 4, 2020.

To date, the Board has opened 156 regulatory cases statewide, relating to non-compliance with the Board’s Health and Safety Policies and conducted over 10,135 inspections and observations. Pursuant to subsections 4 and 6 of NRS 463.120, any information prepared or obtained by the Board relating to a licensee’s compliance with the Health and Safety Policies is confidential.

“The Board has continued to work around the clock with its partners at other state agencies and local jurisdictions to achieve its statewide mission of protecting the health and welfare of the general public at licensed gaming establishments by enforcing its Health and Safety Policies, as well as the Emergency Directives issued by the Office of the Governor,” said James Taylor, Chief of Enforcement.

Of the 156 regulatory cases, the Board has filed 3 formal complaints against licensees with the Nevada Gaming Commission.

“The Gaming Control Board has never shied away from its duty to strictly regulate licensed gaming, and the same is true for the enforcement of Governor Sisolak’s Emergency Directives and the Board’s Health and Safety Policies. The Board will present cases to the Nevada Gaming Commission against licensees to ensure that public health and safety remains a priority for the gaming industry,” said Chairwoman Sandra Douglass Morgan.
