The First Las Vegas Pool Party Just Took Place, 78 Days After Lockdown

After 78 days of lockdown, the first Las Vegas pool party took place this week at the Flamingo.

Sin City’s famous Strip was shut down back in March due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. As one of dance music’s primary destinations, venues suffered major blows, as well as hotels, casinos, restaurants, etc. — and now they’re starting to reopen at reduced capacity.

Las Vegas saw several reopenings on Thursday, including MGM Resorts International‘s Bellagio, MGM Grand, New York-New York and Signature; and Caesars Entertainment‘s Caesars Palace, Flamingo and Harrah’s.

Safety protocols include: social distancing, hand washing, face masks, and cleaning/sanitization requirements.

The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services recently reported 8,935 coronavirus cases and 429 related deaths.
