The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority just dropped a new ad campaign, promising a “new Vegas for the new reality.”

With the world making changes to battle the coronavirus (Covid-19), Las Vegas is doing the same. Guests to the city can prepare for many changes when the Strip fully reopens.
Since Mid-March, any and all gaming establishments in Nevada have been closed to try and mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.
In order to reopen, Nevada state officials mandated that casinos must reduce the amount of guests allowed in their buildings at anytime, as well as reduce the number of table games and slot machines.
Many properties, including Wynn Las Vegas, have provided to the public their plans for reopening.
While there isn’t an official reopening date for the casinos, some in the industry have surmised that things may start to open in late May or early June 2020.
In the ad, they say, “We’re working to make it more intimate, with more space and the excitement you’ve come to expect.” That would be a nice change for Las Vegas. More space is a good thing.
About Las Vegas
Las Vegas (Spanish for “The Meadows”), officially the City of Las Vegas and often known simply as Vegas, is the 28th-most populated city in the United States, the most populated city in the state of Nevada, and the county seat of Clark County. The city anchors the Las Vegas Valley metropolitan area and is the largest city within the greater Mojave Desert. Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city, known primarily for its gambling, shopping, fine dining, entertainment, and nightlife. The Las Vegas Valley as a whole serves as the leading financial, commercial, and cultural center for Nevada.
The city bills itself as The Entertainment Capital of the World and is famous for its mega casino-hotels and associated activities. It is a top three destination in the United States for business conventions and a global leader in the hospitality industry, claiming more AAA Five Diamond hotels than any other city in the world. Today, Las Vegas annually ranks as one of the world’s most visited tourist destinations. The city’s tolerance for numerous forms of adult entertainment earned it the title of “Sin City”, and has made Las Vegas a popular setting for literature, films, television programs, and music videos.
Las Vegas was settled in 1905 and officially incorporated in 1911. At the close of the 20th century, it was the most populated American city founded within that century (a similar distinction was earned by Chicago in the 19th century). Population growth has accelerated since the 1960s, and between 1990 and 2000 the population nearly doubled, increasing by 85.2%. Rapid growth has continued into the 21st century, and according to estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau, the city had 648,224 residents in 2018, with a metropolitan population of 2,227,053.
As with most major metropolitan areas, the name of the primary city (“Las Vegas” in this case) is often used to describe areas beyond official city limits. In the case of Las Vegas, this especially applies to the areas on and near the Las Vegas Strip, which is actually located within the unincorporated communities of Paradise and Winchester. – Wikipedia
