MGM Resorts International is the latest US casino operator to lay out plans to reopen its gambling facilities in Mississippi, after it was forced to shut down due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Gold Strike Casino Resort in Tunica is scheduled to reopen to the public on May 25, and the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi will follow suit by June 1. According to MGM, it would also organize an invitation-only weekend at each casino prior to them reopening to the public.
All gambling and gaming venues in the state have been closed since March 16.
In line with the new guidelines laid out by the Mississippi Gaming Commission, each of the casinos will operate at 50% capacity. MGM added that table games and slot machines will be arranged in accordance to social distancing guidelines.
