The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas joins a growing list of resorts that will close in order to contain the spread of COVID-19.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the resort will close to guests starting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18, and may reopen on March 31.

“This action is in line with recommendations by local and federal health authorities encouraging limited social gatherings and travel, and Gov. Sisolak’s recommendation that casinos consider closing to the public,” the resort tells its guests online. “Starting immediately, we will initiate an orderly departure for our in-house guests over the next 48 hours. Our employees have always been our priority, and we will continue to offer pay and benefits to full-time employees through March 31, 2020.”

Earlier, the resort announced that it would close five of its restaurants — Red Plate, Rose. Rabbit. Lie., Wicked Spoon, Overlook Grill, and Va Bene — starting March 16. Chef José Andrés temporarily closed Jaleo, é by José Andrés, and China Poblano at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas after service on Sunday night to impede the spread of COVID-19. Beauty & Essex and Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub also announced that they would close.

Other restaurants at the resort include David Chang’s Momofuku, Blue Ribbon Brasserie, STK, Estiatorio Milos, Zuma, Scarpetta, and Eggslut.

All of MGM Resort International’s resorts close in Las Vegas on March 17, as do Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Las Vegas. Caesars Entertainment plans to keep its Las Vegas resorts open with limited restaurants and bars serving.
