COVID-19 Resources and Research
The health and safety of all visitors to Las Vegas are paramount and the Las Vegas Visitors and Convention Authority (LVCVA) is committed to providing our visitors, community and industry partners with accurate and timely information about traveling to the destination, as well as to ensure that we continue to provide a safe environment for those who are visiting.
The LVCVA continues to work closely with state and local officials, public health officials, and partners in the hospitality industry to keep the city and its residents safe and healthy, as we know that many of those most significantly impacted include hospitality workers and businesses. While we work every day on the destination’s response to the virus, we are also preparing our industry for recovery.
The LVCVA’s citywide Vegas Smart campaign was launched to encourage visitors to stay smart and stay healthy while enjoying the destination. For more information, as well as links to each resort partner’s healthy and safety plan, click here.
