Las Vegas has recently seen massive crowds after casinos have reopened to 50% capacity. Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak recently signed a “Roadmap to Recovery” ruling that would allow casinos to increase capacity from 35 percent to 50 percent and people are taking full advantage of it. And no amount of masks or social distancing measures could prepare some people for what they saw.
Las Vegas resident Laura Amendala says, “I took a few pictures to send to my son in Chicago, and I said, ‘I can’t believe there are this many people out.’ I couldn’t even get into the Bellagio parking lot to see the botanical garden. It was filled to capacity.”
