MGM Resorts Releases Health and Safety Plan for Re-Opening United States Properties

 

MGM RESORTS INTERNATIONAL RELEASES HEALTH AND SAFETY PLAN
FOR RE-OPENING UNITED STATES PROPERTIES

 

Expert input, digital innovation and operational enhancements are at the forefront of
MGM Resorts’ “Seven-Point Safety Plan”

 

MGM Resorts Lead Health and Safety Advisor: Dr. Shannon Magari, Vice President of Health Sciences for Colden Corporation

 

MGM Resorts is working with Dr. Shannon Magari, ScD, MPH, MS as its lead health and safety advisor for this process. Dr. Magari is the Vice President of Health Sciences for Colden Corporation, an occupational health, safety and environmental firm. Dr. Magari obtained her Master of Science from the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College and received her doctoral training and served as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health – specializing in Occupational Epidemiology.

 

OVERVIEW: MGM RESORTS’ SEVEN-POINT SAFETY PLAN

 

The full report, including detailed protocols, procedures and operational enhancements can be found HERE.

 

These protocols and procedures focus on balancing the customer service guests have come to expect from MGM Resorts with the urgent need to apply knowledge about COVID-19 and adapt environments accordingly. This plan is being implemented at MGM Resorts’ properties throughout the United States, with additions and changes being made based on local jurisdictions.

 

MGM Resorts’ Seven-Point Safety Plan is as follows:

 

  1. Screening, Temperature Checks and Employee Training: MGM Resorts has implemented employee-screening measures to assess signs and symptoms of infection and whether the employee resides or cares for someone who has recently been diagnosed with the virus. Employees are currently and will continue to go through temperature checks before entering properties.

 

Guests will be asked to abide by a similar self-screening protocol prior to arriving and during their stay. Guests who have reason to believe they may have been exposed to the virus are strongly urged to follow CDC guidelines for self-quarantine and not travel. We will look forward to welcoming those guests once the self-quarantine period is complete.

 

  1. Mandatory Masks and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): All MGM Resorts employees will be provided and required to wear an approved mask when on our properties. We will also strongly encourage guests to wear masks in public areas and offer masks to any guests who need one, free of charge. Gloves will continue to be worn by employees who require them to do their jobs, such as food handlers and employees who clean public areas. Additional categories of employees required to wear PPE will be identified by medical experts.
    • Drink service: We will ask guests to minimize the amount of time masks are removed when drinking on the casino floor.
    • Eating: We will ask guests to refrain from eating on the casino floor to minimize the amount of time masks are removed.

 

  1. Physical Distancing: Six-foot physical distancing policy will be in place, wherever feasible, with floor guides serving as reminders throughout MGM Resorts properties. From time-to-time, six-foot distancing will be challenging – and in those cases, reasonable mitigating protocols will be implemented, such as plexiglass barriers or eye protection for employees. Plexiglass barriers will be installed in areas throughout casinos and lobbies, where appropriate, for the safety of guests and employees. Signage will be installed throughout properties to guide employees and guests on how to safely practice physical distancing.

 

  1. Handwashing and Enhanced Sanitization: Prior to property closures in March, MGM Resorts implemented increased and enhanced routine cleaning, based on CDC guidelines, with a focus on high-touch surfaces in common areas. We will continue using proven cleaning products in accordance with EPA guidelines for coronaviruses, bacteria and other infectious pathogens. Electrostatic sprayers will be used in many large areas to allow us to apply disinfectant more efficiently.

 

In addition, custom-built handwashing stations with soap and water, along with hand-sanitizing stations, will be readily available in high-traffic areas and with a visible presence. Signage will be installed to guide and remind employees and guests of the importance of proper handwashing protocols.

 

  1. Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Controls and Air Quality: MGM Resorts has always placed a high priority on air quality for our guests and has reviewed the operation of HVAC systems to identify additional opportunities to enhance their effectiveness. Rigorous measures in accordance with established guidelines to help mitigate the risk of virus transmission have been taken throughout our properties.

 

As scientific information becomes available about the virus, and as additional guidance from state and local authorities and our medical experts evolve, we will continue to review and adjust the operation of our HVAC systems, fully recognizing the important role they have in keeping employees and guests healthy and safe.

 

  1. Incident Response Protocols: MGM Resorts has protocols in place aimed at reducing the chance infection will spread. In the unfortunate event a guest or employee tests positive for the virus, we will activate incident response protocols to ensure the infected individual has access to medical treatment, exposed areas are thoroughly sanitized and, when possible, notify those who may have come in close, prolonged contact with the infected individual. MGM Resorts has medical and security personnel on staff to respond quickly in the event of an incident.

 

  1. Digital Innovations: MGM Resorts is reimagining several aspects of the guest experience through technology to transition current processes into contactless options for guests that eliminates or reduces the need for waiting in line.
    • Contactless Check-In: Guests will have the ability to complete the check-in process entirely themselves through the MGM Resorts mobile app. This includes the ability to process payment, verify identification and obtain a digital room key, all through a mobile device. If preferred, physical keys will be available through self-serve key encoders. Employees will be available for guests who prefer check-in without using their mobile device, while still maintaining a line-reduced environment.
    • Food & Beverage: Digital menus will be available to view on personal mobile devices via QR code. Virtual queues will be in place for guests when immediate seating is unavailable. Guests will receive a text message notification when their table is ready.

LAS VEGAS (May 12, 2020) – MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) today released a report outlining the comprehensive health and safety protocols the company is implementing prior to re-opening its domestic properties and resorts which were temporarily closed in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The report details MGM Resorts’ “Seven-Point Safety Plan” – a multi-layered set of protocols and procedures designed in conjunction with medical and scientific experts to deter the spread of the virus, protect customers and employees and rapidly respond to potential new cases. The full report can be found HERE.

 

“Preparing for the moment we can re-open our doors, MGM Resorts focused on developing a plan that puts health and safety at the center of everything we do. Our ‘Seven-Point Safety Plan’ is the result of months of consultations with public health experts and outlines our comprehensive approach to welcoming guests back safely,” said MGM Resorts Acting CEO and President Bill Hornbuckle. “Our properties will not look the way they used to for a while, and that’s not only okay, it’s critically important. We will continue providing the hospitality experiences we are known for, but we must do so safely. We will continue working with experts and following guidance from the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and government officials and regulators as we evolve these protocols based on the latest information.”

Bank of Nevada Announces $415,000 Donation to Support Nevada Communities Impacted by COVID-19

 

Bank of Nevada Announces $415,000 Donation to Support Nevada Communities Impacted by COVID-19

Part of $2 Million Contribution from Parent Company Western Alliance Bank

 Bank of Nevada today announced it is committing more than $415,000 to help mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic on local communities across Nevada and strengthen those communities as they work to emerge from the crisis.

Contributions in southern Nevada will help address shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) for first responders, acquire additional COVID-19 tests and testing equipment, address food insecurity, invest in technology to aid online learning, help businesses avoid layoffs, and provide assistance to some of the most vulnerable in the communities Bank of Nevada serves.

These funds are part of an overall contribution of $2 million from Western Alliance Bancorporation (NYSE:WAL), the Phoenix-based parent company of Bank of Nevada, for community needs in Nevada, Arizona and California. The $415,000 donation encompasses all support given to organizations within the State of Nevada on behalf of Bank of Nevada and First Independent Bank.

“We are proud to help our community respond to the many challenges caused by COVID-19, and Bank of Nevada wants to make a difference in meeting immediate needs, as well as offering longer-term support for organizations that help strengthen our workforce, provide affordable housing and create economic resilience,” said John Guedry, Division CEO, Bank of Nevada.

In southern Nevada, funded organizations include:

  • The COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, supported by the Nevada COVID-19 Response, Relief and Recovery Task Force in partnership with Nevada Community Foundation. Funding will assist first responders and healthcare providers in support of Nevada’s response, relief and recovery efforts with additional focus on Nevada’s skilled nursing, assisted living and senior housing facilities.
  • Workforce Connections – Layoff Aversion Pilot, an initiative, to reimburse small businesses in southern Nevada for a portion of employee wages.
  • United Way of Southern Nevada, particularly its support for families and individuals dealing with food insecurity.
  • The Public Education Foundation, supporting purchases for online learning devices to benefit students of The Clark County School District, as well as assist in providing training for educators in digital instruction.
  • Delivering with Dignity, a program of the Moonridge Foundation, providing restaurant meals delivered by volunteers to home-bound seniors. This donation is made in memory of Fred Meier who recently passed, and is the father of Moonridge Foundation CEO Julie Murray.

“Our communities face unprecedented health and economic challenges from the coronavirus,” said Kenneth Vecchione, President and Chief Executive Officer of Western Alliance Bank. “We are a people-first organization, and that we are able to help others – from firefighters and front-line healthcare workers to small businesses and hungry families who need support right now – is meaningful to all of us.”

The bank’s $2 million commitment also supports longer-term efforts to strengthen communities and create resilience for low- and moderate-income families, including programs to prevent homelessness, provide continuum of care, and bolster affordable housing and economic development.

“It means a great deal to us that Bank of Nevada sees the work United Way of Southern Nevada is doing and the value we are providing to our community and trusts us to distribute these funds to those who are most in need,” said Kyle B. Rahn, President & CEO, United Way of Southern Nevada. “We are honored to have their support of our Emergency Assistance and Community Needs Fund to help Southern Nevada’s most vulnerable residents.”

“The Public Education Foundation is proud to partner with Bank of Nevada to equip our students with the essential technology they need for distance learning while schools are closed,” said Judi Steele, Chief Executive Officer of The Public Education Foundation. “We applaud Bank of Nevada for its continued commitment to Nevada’s non-profit organizations in supporting children and families.”

HENDERSON-BASED EATERY, THE STOVE, DEVISES PLAN TO EMERGE FROM THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC FRI., MAY 15

HENDERSON-BASED EATERY, THE STOVE, DEVISES PLAN TO EMERGE FROM THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC FRI., MAY 15

The Stove will resume dine-in service beginning Fri., May 15 based on Governor Sisolak’s directives. The Henderson-based eatery has devised an in-depth plan that will be executed during a week-long staff orientation to ensure a safe environment for their patrons upon reopening. 

“Instead of an abrupt re-opening, we have decided to take the next week to abide by the new laws and regulations delegated by the state of Nevada to ensure a safe environment for all of our guests upon their return to The Stove,” said Executive Chef and Part Owner Antonio Nunez. “We are closely following the Southern Nevada Health Department’s guidelines, and have devised a 10-step plan in accordance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s policies, giving our guests peace of mind as soon as they walk through our doors.” 

The Stove is taking all of the necessary steps required by government officials to re-open, including requiring staff to wear protective masks and gloves at all times, reducing occupancy by 50%, installing hand sanitizer dispensers at the entrance,  wiping down key touch points on a frequent basis, and implementing a temporary reservation-based dining model until returning to full occupancy. 

Beyond the standard efforts outlined by the state government, The Stove is implementing a new air filtration system as well as a state-of-the-art disinfectant that binds powerful, germ-killing chlorine atoms on any surface or clothing material. The solution, known as Medecide™, will destroy many pathogens including the Coronavirus, and remains active on any surface for up to 28 days. 

The main dining room, private dining room and tea room will be split up into three different sanctions, with partitions implemented in certain areas of each of the dining areas. All furniture will be removed from the lobby to avoid congregated wait areas as guests must remain at a safe distance to ensure safety measures. Use of the elevator will be limited to the elderly, disabled, and those with strollers. Restrooms will be closed for 30 minutes each day for sanitization purposes. 

In addition to resuming dine-in operations, The Stove will continue to offer curbside pickup and will implement an in-house delivery system. Seniors that take advantage of curbside pickup or delivery will enjoy a buy-one-get-one offer on all entrées, and can take advantage of any specials that were previously implemented in 2020. 

Reservations can be made by calling (702) 625-5216 beginning Wednesday, May 13th for the restaurant’s re-opening date on May 15th. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Saturday through Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

ABOUT THE STOVE 

The Stove features multi-dimensional design dining experiences by celebrity chef Scott Commings, celebrated Vegas Valley local chef, Antonio Nunez, and General Contractor Steve Grodkiewicz of Established Culinary Management. Leisurely lounging at the main bar overlooking the main dining room with a pastry bar sets the scene for the backdrop of the restaurant. The adjacent room has the feel of a speakeasy as you enter, but the setting of a Mad Hatter tea room with an edgy, one-of-a-kind twist to service. New to the restaurant’s offering is the Chambong (champagne-meets-bong) experience all set to breathtaking views of the Valley.
