Las Vegas Sands Corp LVS shares are trading lower Monday amid an outbreak of COVID-19 cases in China resulting in restrictive measures which can impact economic activity. Las Vegas Sands operates resorts and casinos in Macao.

COVID-19 cases have been rising in Beijing’s most populous district, according to a Reuters report.
