Caesars Entertainment has announced its plans to reopen its properties once permitted by applicable Government or tribal bodies.
As part of its new safety measures, the operator will encourage social distancing measures and implement health and safety protocols in line with recommendations from domestic and international authorities.
Health and safety procedures will include enhanced cleaning of public spaces and guest rooms, training for all employees and hand sanitizer availability.
All team members will also be provided with masks which they will be required to wear while they work and additional PPE will be provided for housekeeping and security.
Caesars aims to reopen properties in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Council Bluffs and Lake Tahoe in line with anticipated business demand.
Tony Rodio, CEO of Caesars, commented: “We look forward to welcoming our guests and team members back to our properties as soon as it is appropriate to do so.
«We are implementing new protocols focused on the wellbeing of our team members, guests and communities to create environments with high standards of sanitisation and physical distancing practices. We are working closely with public health authorities, gaming regulators and infectious disease specialists to design our plan.»
