MGM Resorts International recently announced that it will be resuming entertainment evens at its properties in Las Vegas, Nevada starting November 6.
All casinos in the state of Nevada were forced to shut down and cancel entertainment for close to eight months due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Regulations imposed to ban events were introduced around mid-March.
But, after Nevada’s land-based casinos reopened in June, restrictions have been relaxed to allow entertainment shows to make a comeback starting next month.
The first phase of the reopening will allow for a maximum of at least 250 guests. Physical distancing measures must be observed as well, with least 6 feet distance between parties and a minimum of 25 feet from on-stage performers.
“After eight months, it’s time to bring entertainment back to the Entertainment Capital of the World,” George Kliavkoff, MGM Resorts’ president of entertainment and sports, said.
“While there is still a long road in our city’s recovery, the reintroduction of these shows is an important step. November 6 is going to feel very special as we welcome back team members and guests and bring the curtains up for that first time.”
