Las Vegas pools getting back in business for party season

Updated March 3, 2021 - 8:45 am

Prepare for face-mask tan lines, social distancing and lighter crowds during pool season on the Las Vegas Strip. But even under pandemic directives and restrictions, several of the city’s famous pool-party spaces are back in business beginning in March and running through the summer.

The clubs are either requiring or strongly encouraging reservations for access. They are also operating at a restricted capacity, under state-mandated COVID safety protocols. That means proper social distancing is required, masks are to be worn at all times unless guests are actively eating or drinking, and strict sanitation protocols are enforced.

The clubs are allowed to operate at 35-percent capacity beginning Monday, then shift to 50 -percent capacity on March 15. A look at the venues again ready to dive into the pool:
