MGM Resorts International announced the reopening dates of its Mississippi resorts, the first of the company’s U.S. properties to reopen following closure earlier this year amid the COVID-19 crisis. Gold Strike Casino Resort in Tunica will reopen in a limited capacity to the public on May 25, followed by Biloxi’s Beau Rivage Resort & Casino’s reopening on June 1, also in a limited capacity.
Last week, MGM Resorts released its comprehensive Seven-Point Safety Plan, a 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. Initiatives include temperature screenings, masks for employees, physical distancing policies, hand washing stations, and more.
Per Mississippi Gaming Commission guidelines, a 50 percent capacity restriction will be enforced. Table games and slot machines will be configured to allow for appropriate physical distancing, and valet parking will be temporarily discontinued.
