MGM Resorts reveals safe reopening plans for US casinos
MGM Resorts has set out a new strategy for safely reopening its casinos, having been forced to close venues in March due to novel coronavirus (Covid-19).
The operator has devised a seven-point safety plan, based on advice from medical and scientific experts, to deter the spread of the virus, protect customers and staff, and respond to potential new cases.
“Preparing for the moment we can re-open our doors, MGM Resorts focused on developing a plan that puts health and safety at the centre of everything we do,” MGM Resorts acting chief executive and president Bill Hornbuckle explained.
“Our seven-point safety plan is the result of months of consultations with public health experts and outlines our comprehensive approach to welcoming guests back safely.”
First, MGM has committed to a wide-reaching screening program, whereby it will carry out checks on employees to establish whether they are showing any signs of coronavirus before permitting them to enter the building. Guests will also be subject to similar checks on arrival at MGM locations.
