MGM Resorts International recently revealed its plans to reopen three more of its Las Vegas casinos in the coming weeks as the state emerges from the enforced shutdown due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19).
This news comes after the first wave of casinos reopened across Las Vegas last week after being ordered to shut down from March 17. Properties are expected to abide by the Nevada Gaming Control Board’s guidelines for reopening casinos, such as limiting the number of players allowed at 50% occupancy at best.
It was exciting and emotional to see the energy in Las Vegas last week as we welcomed back our employees and reopened our doors to guests for the first time in months,” Bill Hornbuckle, MGM Resorts’ acting CEO and President, said.
“Our guests are having a great time and are thrilled to be back in the city they love. We are eager to get more of our employees back to work and enhance the Las Vegas experience with additional resorts.”
