Casinos partner with University Medical Center (UMC), the Culinary Health Fund and the Las Vegas Convention Center for Covid-19 testing.
US.- Casino operators in Las Vegas have joined a Covid-19 testing initiative designed to rigorously test gaming employees before they return to work.
Casinos across the Strip will partner with University Medical Center (UMC), the Culinary Health Fund and the Las Vegas Convention Center to ramp up employee testing before reopening to the public.
MGM acting CEO, Bill Hornbuckle, said: “The ability to safely reopen our properties has been our singular focus over the past several weeks.
“This testing partnership will allow us to provide our employees and guests peace of mind that we are taking the greatest possible precautions to keep them safe.”
Caesars CEO, Jack Rodio, said: “Caesars appreciates the gaming industry and union partnership with UMC to test our employees for Covid-19.
“All Caesars employees would complete a pre-screening questionnaire and the results would determine the need for a Covid-19 test before returning to work.”
Meanwhile, Boyd Gaming President and CEO, Kevin Smith, said: “Through this expansion of our partnership with UMC, we can do our part to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 in our community, and demonstrate our commitment to offering a safe and entertaining environment for everyone.”
Casinos in Las Vegas are beginning to announce reopening dates with the Venetian set to open on June 1.
