Westgate reopens its casino, hotels, and some restaurants on Thursday, June 18. The SuperBook with its 30,000 square feet of space, more than 350 seats, and 220-foot-by-18-foot 4K video wall returns as well as Fresco Italiano with its backdrop of a Tuscan Village and the Fortuna with its pastries, coffees, sandwiches, and salads.
Other restaurants such as Benihana and Edge Steakhouse do not have a return date, nor does the buffet.
Westgate says that customers can cancel their reservation 24 hour before arriving through Dec. 17.
All departments at the resort near the Las Vegas Convention Center now have hand washing or sanitizing procedures, as well as hygiene protocols for staff. All public and guest areas receive regular sanitization and deep cleaning. Customers can find additional hand sanitization stations throughout the resort.
Staff who show “flu-like” symptoms cannot work until they visit a doctor and have permission. Staff who travel to a destination that is experiencing outbreaks of the coronavirus must self-quarantine for 14 days.
Gov. Steve Sisolak closed casinos on March 17 to curb the spread of COVID-19. The Nevada Gaming Control Board issued guidelines to resorts to reopen that include maintaining 50 percent capacity, masks on staff, cleaning protocols, and social distancing throughout the casino. Casinos were permitted to reopen across the state on June 4.
