LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Though no firm date has been set for the re-opening of any of its properties, MGM Resorts International on Tuesday released what it's calling a Seven-Point-Safety-Plan for how the company will be operating when that time comes.

The plan involves,

1) Screening, Temperature Checks and Employee Training

2) Mandatory masks (for employees) and PPE

3) Physical distance guidelines. Where this isn’t feasible, MGM says they will "mitigate as best as possible with plexiglass barriers, face shields or clear signage".

4) Hand-washing and sanitation stations will be available through the properties

5) HVAC controls and improved air quality, focuisng on circulating more outside air through the properties

6) Incident response protocols in the event a guest tests positive for COVID-19

7) Digital Innovations, including allowing guests to check in on their phone instead of waiting in line (though in-person check-in will still be available for those who don't have that option)
