The Delano, the non-gaming resort next to Mandalay Bay, plans to reopen on July 1, MGM Resorts International reports. Delano joins Mandalay Bay, the Four Seasons, and Aria, all reopening on July 1. The Bellagio, MGM Grand, and New York-New York, along with the non-gaming Signature, reopened on June 4, and Excalibur reopened on June 18. Luxor plans to reopen on June 25.
So far, MGM Resorts has not indicated which restaurants will reopen at the Delano. Rivea, the Mediterranean restaurant from Alain Ducasse, its neighboring lounge Skyfall Lounge, and breakfast and lunch restaurant Della’s Kitchen all find a home at the resort. The resort also hosts Delano Beach Club and Franklin Lounge in the lobby.
“We are pleased to bring more employees back to work,” said Bill Hornbuckle, MGM Resorts’ acting CEO and president, said in a press statement. “As we continue monitoring business demand, and with safety at the forefront of our planning, we are able to open additional resorts and build our workforce, which is so critically important to our community.”
Only Park MGM, NoMad, the non-gaming Vdara, and the Mirage from the MGM Resorts family of resorts remain closed after July 1.
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.
