28 May 2020

MGM Resorts International has announced plans to reopen its casinos in Las Vegas on 4 June, in line with measures set out by Governor Steve Sisolak.

The Bellagio, New York-New York, MGM Grand Las Vegas and The Signature are scheduled to reopen next week, though amenities at all of the properties will be limited due to the ongoing novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.

MGM said the casinos would also operate in line with its seven-point safety plan, set out earlier this month to ensure the safety of all customers and employees.

Key initiatives include staff screening, temperature checks and Covid-19 specific training, as well as a requirement for employees to wear face masks, the roll out of social distancing measures across casino sites and the installation of plexiglass barriers where physical distancing is not possible.
