Nevada Casinos Will Get Covid-19 Legal Protections

Today Nevada governor Steve Sisolak has announced that he has signed a bill into law that will extend legal protections to casinos related to possible Covid-19 lawsuits filed against them.

The new law was previously known as Senate Bill 4 and covers all businesses that provide entertainment services in Nevada. It specifically protects those entities from being sued for anything related to Covid-19, provided the entities are operating in line with the requirements set forth by the Silver State.

Commenting on the signing Governor Sisolak said, "This bill isn't about economic expansion - it's about our state's economic survival. It's about acknowledging that Nevada relies heavily on a single industry - the hospitality industry - and in order to make it through this historic storm, we must ensure it survives.

"But it's not just about protecting the businesses - it's also about protecting the workers that keep this industry and our economy running."
