Gambling floor and certain other amenities at The LINQ Hotel & Casino will once again be available to the public starting coming Friday, June 12th, American gambling and entertainment giant Caesars Entertainment Corporation confirmed.
The Las Vegas-based LINQ Hotel & Casino has been closed since 18th of March as the deadly corona virus started spreading across the United States. At the time, Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak issued “stay-at-home” order, while the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global pandemic.
As June 12th fixed as the date for reopening of the LINQ Hotel & Casino, the facility will welcome back guests after nearly three months. The company’s Chief Executive Officer Tony Rodio said they were very excited and pleased to welcome guests and team members back to some of their properties in the Sin City.
Speaking on the topic, Mr. Rodio added, “We are encouraged by customer interest and visits, strong demand, and the implementation, so far, of our enhanced health and safety protocols. This is a new way of operating, and we will continue to evaluate and adjust our procedures to enhance guest and team member comfort and experiences.”
The senior executive further said that the company’s expansion plans would continue to reflect customer demand in addition to focus on properly executing health and safety directives to defend public health against the deadly corona virus pandemic, which has killed thousands of Americans and left millions sick over the past three months.
The LINQ gambling and gaming floor in addition to certain other amenities, including services like food and beverages, will be the first to be reopened to the members of the public after the prolonged COVID-19-induced shutdown.
To defend public health against the potential risk of corona virus transmissions, the LINQ Hotel & Casino will strictly follow safeguards and guidelines issued by the federal and state health authorities. The long list of safeguards includes sanitization of the entire property, including gaming tables and slot machines, marking non-gaming areas like entrances and registration desks to help maintain proper social distancing, installing equipments like plexiglasses to separate gamers, asking each casino worker as well as visitor to wear a face mask and use hand sanitizer. In addition, the entertainment giant will make arrangements to provide its employees with special training on health safety and disinfection protocols.
