Wynn Las Vegas and its sister property Encore Las Vegas plan to close to the public starting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17, to impede the spread of COVID-19, also known as novel coronavirus, according to an internal document from Matt Maddux, CEO of Wynn Las Vegas. The resort plans to stay closed until April 1, and will reassess the situation in about 10 days.

After March 17, the resort will work internally to close all operations.

The resort tells staff to report for work for any shifts beginning before 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

Last week, the resort opted to close The Buffet at Wynn, as well as XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club to prevent the spread of coronavirus. It installed thermal cameras at entrances to monitor the temperature of visitors and staff asked visitors with a temperature of 100.4F or higher to leave.

Wynn also implemented social distancing at restaurants and between gaming devices.

Elio, the new Mexican restaurant opening at Encore Las Vegas from Enrique Olvera, Daniela Soto-Innes, and Santiago Perez of ATM Group, planned to open on March 21.
