Mohegan Sun Casino agrees $60,000 fine for COVID-19 violations on opening night

Mohegan Sun Casino

Mohegan Sun Casino at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas has agreed to pay a $60,000 fine for violating the state’s COVID-19 protocols when it opened on March 25.

The matter, which now goes before the Nevada Gaming Commission, went to the Nevada Gaming Control Board. It happened as new CEO Ray Pineault apologized for the violations during a licensing-suitability hearing in which the board recommended approval.

The Gaming Control Board filed a complaint, citing photos of celebrities and patrons that violated health and safety protocols.

The Nevada Occupational Safety and Health Administration accused the casino on April 27 for failing to maintain social distancing. They also and failed to enforce the mask mandate for table game guests.

“We’ve agreed to settle claims involving our Nevada property arising from this incident,” Pineault said. As the organization’s leader, I accept full responsibility for our failure to uphold the Gaming Control Board’s standards.”
