MGM Resorts International has reported further reopenings of the company, after which the entire roster of the firm will return to action following worldwide closures to curb COVID-19 spread.
The company has noted that its Four Seasons Las Vegas property will reopen on September 25, followed on September 30 by Park MGM and NoMad Las Vegas which will also become the first completely smoke-free casino resort in The Strip.
Bill Hornbuckle, MGM Resorts CEO and president said: “Opening Park MGM and NoMad represent significant milestones, as they are the last of our properties to welcome back employees and guests alike.
“The last six months have presented extraordinary challenges and I could not be prouder of the MGM Resorts team for the tireless effort required to get us here. There is much work ahead as we remain focused on the health and safety of our employees and guests, but this is an important moment for us.”
Upon reopening, facilities in both ParkMGM and the NoMad Las Vegas hotel will be reduced, with days and hours of operation also expected to differ at both venues.
The President of MGM Resorts’ Las Vegas portfolio, Anton Nikodemus, added: “As we looked toward our reopening, we identified an opportunity to be responsive to recurring guest demand for a fully non-smoking casino resort on The Strip. With an expansive Las Vegas portfolio, MGM Resorts is able to offer an array of options for visitors, all within the MGM Resorts family.”
In addition, MGM’s ‘Seven-Point Safety Plan,’ designed to minimise the spread of coronavirus in collaboration with medical and scientific experts, will also be introduced at the reopenings.
Key measures include employee screening, temperature controls and specialised COVID-19 training, mandatory mask requirement, physical distance policy, implementation of plexiglass barriers in some locations, and separate group-designed hand-washing stations located across casino floors.
