SAHARA Las Vegas Thursday released it's outline of health and safety protocols under the resort’s SAHARA Cares program that will be implemented upon re-opening following the government-mandated closure of the property on March 17 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The outline details enhancements to the resort’s rigorous sanitation protocols along with new social distance considerations. SAHARA Las Vegas says it collaborated with experts to establish hundreds of additional practices to minimize risk for guests and team members. 

“The health and safety of our guests and team members is our number one priority,” said Paul Hobson, SAHARA Las Vegas Senior Vice President and General Manager. “In addition to the enhanced cleaning practices, we have developed new service initiatives designed with the wellbeing of our guests in mind. We recognize the ongoing need to stay informed regarding the latest recommended protocols and resources to deter the spread of the virus. We are committed to ensuring both our guests and team members can feel safe when they come to our resort.”

Players of live table games will be asked to wear cloth facemasks and to step away from the game if they want to smoke.   Restaurants will no longer have resuable menus and all employees will be issued facemasks which will be required while on shift.
