Las Vegas casinos, shuttered by COVID pandemic, set to reopen June 4

LAS VEGAS (KABC) -- Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak announced Tuesday night that the state's casinos can reopen after a 10-week shutdown on June 4, welcoming tourists to the gambling mecca of Las Vegas.

Sisolak had planned to make the announcement at a news conference but scrapped the live event after he learned he was potentially exposed to the virus at a workplace visit.

After years of charging for parking, all hotels on the Las Vegas Strip are again offering free parking.
