Prepare for Las Vegas as it reopened at 100% capacity on June 1
With the rate of vaccination against COVID-19 speeding up, US states and cities are easing restrictions, with Las Vegas following the lead. As of 1st of June, Las Vegas reopens fully to vaccinated persons. Visitors will have full access to restaurants and dance clubs, with no capacity limits in place. For the hotel guests who are not vaccinated, face masks are required.
Our ERA Global conference partners, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, have announced that they are also anticipating to be operating to full capacity without any restrictions as of 1st June.
“Casinos will no longer be forced to impose capacity limits or require social distancing. Non-vaccinated guests are still expected to wear face masks, though most casinos are using an honor system to mandate mask wearing”, stated Nevada Gaming Control Board Chair J. Brin Gibson in the notice sent to all gaming licensees prior to 1st of June.
As for the health and sanitization measures in place, The Cosmopolitan has implemented new standards to ensure the “guests have safe and healthy events (…):
- All floor plans are reviewed to ensure compliance with physical distancing protocols.
- Public area furniture layouts will be modified to ensure compliance with physical distancing protocols.
- The frequency of cleaning and disinfecting meeting and convention areas has been increased.
- Hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the meeting and convention spaces.
- Hand sanitizer dispensers will be available in all meeting rooms when in use.
- During peak periods, attendants will regularly sanitize escalator handrails.
- All vendors and contractors will be subject to temperature screening before beginning their shift.
- All food and beverage service has been returned to normal standards. Plated, Buffet and Self Serve food and beverage is now available to all events.”
According to The Cosmopolitan Health and Sanitization Guidelines, “fully vaccinated guests are not required to wear a mask indoors or outdoors. For guests who are not vaccinated, face masks are required at all times inside the resort. For guests with a confirmed medical condition that does not permit them to wear a face mask, complimentary face shields are available”.
We highlight that our association will follow the recommendations of the public authorities in place on the date of the event, with the purpose of reducing the spread of COVID-19 among staff and attendees. Please consider that the measures may change according to the evolution of the international rules. Our association will inform attendees as soon as new measures come in place.
