AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo was LIVE along the world famous Las Vegas Strip on Saturday afternoon. It was very quiet on a day when thousands of tourists and locals would be gambling, catching a show and enjoying a meal. Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered the casinos and non-essential businesses to cease operation for an extended period of time. The decision was made to keep Nevadans safe and healthy during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Many casinos had barricades in front with closed signs and doors locked with chains and padlocks. The only businesses open along The Strip are drug stores.
