LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — In a few days, parts of the Las Vegas Strip will reopen for business after being closed for more than two months as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
8 News Now got a first hand look at the changes coming to resorts after given a tour Monday at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino.
At Bellagio Hotel and Casino, guests can expect to see new safety measures that rely on contactless features.
These new changes include a mobile hotel check-in, temperature screeners at entrance doors, mobile restaurant menus and limited seating.
Guests will check-in to their hotel room using their phone and open their doors with a mobile device.
Bellagio will limit their hotel room capacity to 30%, while the casino floor will limit capacity to 50 percent.
The casino looks different, with table dividers, plexiglass screens and limited seating.
Hand-washing stations will be spaced out throughout the resort, and Bellagio will remind guests to practice social distancing with signs and stickers on the floor.
