Casino Land-Based Luxor to reopen Thursday June 22, 2020 By Alex Ulrich Luxor and its iconic pyramid is next MGM property to reopen on the Strip. Known for its pyramid on the Las Vegas Strip, Luxor Hotel & Casino will reopen 10am PST on 25 June following the successful reopening of four other MGM Resorts Las Vegas properties earlier this month. Luxor will join Bellagio, MGM Grand and New York-New York that reopened June 4, the first day the state of Nevada allowed casinos to reopen after being closed for 78 days to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Luxor’s neighbor Excalibur reopened June 11. “Our guests are having a great time and are thrilled to be back in the city they love,” said Bill Hornbuckle, MGM Resorts’ acting CEO and president. Upon reopening, Luxor will adopt MGM Resorts’ “Seven-Point Safety Plan.” This is another set of health and safety protocols and procedures required by all reopening casinos to address the potential risk posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The plan includes screening, temperature checks, and COVID-19 testing and training for its employees. Employees are required to wear facial coverings, and guest are strongly encouraged to do so as well and are required to wear them at table games that have no barriers following the Nevada Gaming Control Board updating its COVID-19 safety requirements. This safety plan mirrors those used in the reopening of casinos in Las Vegas and across the country. It includes the addition of signage to remind guests of social distancing guidelines, Plexiglas barriers, hand-washing and hand-sanitizing stations throughout the resort, a contactless check-in option, and increased cleaning and disinfecting of public places. Luxor’s reopening will be followed by Aria and Mandalay Bay, set to open July 1.
