Employees and guests are required to wear masks. Complimentary masks are provided, to guests, as needed. A physical distancing policy has been implemented, with floor guides serving as reminders. The resort installed plexiglass barriers in places where physical distancing presents challenges. The resort also offers standalone hand-washing stations on the casino floor
Hotel guests can use contactless check-in through the MGM Resorts App. Guestroom attendants wear masks and gloves while cleaning each room and change gloves in between.
The resort also uses electrostatic sprayers to apply disinfectant in large public spaces.
This morning, the resort renamed the street into the Mirage Siegfried & Roy Drive. The magicians and their big cats performed at the resort from 1990-2003. Roy Horn died earlier this year, at the age of 75, due to complications from COVID-19.
