In the past week, some restaurants have closed because employees tested positive for COVID-19.
One resort, Flamingo Las Vegas, reported that it started contact tracing Thursday after identifying two COVID-19 positive cases. Parent company Caesars Entertainment did not disclose whether guests or employees tested positive.

The resort plans to open its new Bugsy & Meyer’s Steakhouse restaurant on July 2nd.
An employee from Wolfgang Puck Players Locker in Downtown Summerlin tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday. “To ensure the safety of our employees and guests, we have temporarily closed the restaurant due to additional hygiene protocols,” says a spokesman for the restaurant. “The employee is quarantined himself and we have all employees tested. The health and safety of our employees and guests was and is of the utmost importance. ”
An employee who had not worked at Beauty & Essex at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas since June 7, tested positive for COVID-19. “Out of caution, we immediately notified the Southern Nevada Health District to begin tracking contacts and informing employees and guests who may have been at risk,” parent company Tao Group said in a statement. “We also decided to test all team members who might have had contact with the employee. The decision was made to temporarily close pending the results of these tests. In the meantime, the venue has been completely refurbished and thoroughly cleaned by certified experts in preparation for reopening. The safety of our guests and employees continues to be our top priority. “
