Las Vegas casinos MGM Grand Las Vegas and the famous Bellagio are two of the casino establishments from MGM Resorts International that have announced a reopening date of 4th June 2020 following the Coronavirus prevention closure.
Other properties that will reopen for business are The Signature and New York-New York, bringing the venue total to four for re-opening to the public again for the first time since March 2020.
The company has announced that the re-opening will be ‘soft’ and that services and amenities within its properties will be limited, more of which will be re-opened as things start to get back to some form of normality and demand increases.
In light of the announcement, executives at MGM Resorts International have been working tirelessly behind the scenes during the closure with medical and scientific experts to formulate a comprehensive set of protocols known as the firm’s ‘Seven Point Safety Plan’.
Bill Hornbuckle of MGM Resorts International commented on the news:
“Our hearts go out to everyone in the communities where we operate, and around the world, who has been personally impacted during this time of crisis. As we plan for these openings, the health and safety of our guests and employees is at the forefront of all we do. Getting many of our employees back to work and welcoming guests through our doors once again will allow us to do what we do best – entertain. The team is ready and we can’t wait.”
MGM’s new measures are designed to prevent the spread of the virus and build trust with customers to ensure a safe environment for all individuals at all times.
The firm is introducing protocols for the foreseeable future that are expected to become the norm for the gaming and hospitality sectors, at least for the second half of 2020. These measures include staff temperature checks, health screening, Covid-19 training, mandatory masks for employees and recommended mask usage for customers, social distancing on casino floors, cleaning and sanitisation stands and contactless check-in among others.
