LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — MGM Resorts International released its health and safety plan Tuesday morning for reopening which is expected to happen in early June.

 Bill Hornbuckle, MGM’s acting ceo and president discussed a June opening during an interview on NBC’s Today show Monday.

The company has a seven-point plan that includes health screening, temperature checks, mandatory masks, digital check-in and digital menus for food service.

“Our properties will not look the way they used to for a while, and that’s not only okay, it’s critically important. We will continue providing the hospitality experiences we are known for, but we must do so safely. We will continue working with experts and following guidance from the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and government officials and regulators as we evolve these protocols based on the latest information,” Horbuckle said.

The plan calls for the following:

  • Screening, temperature checks and employee training
  • Mandatory masks and personal protection equipment
  • Physical distancing – which includes the use of plexiglass barriers in some areas
  • Handwashing and enhanced sanitation
  • Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning controls and air quality
  • Incident Response Protocols should a guest or employee test positive
  • Digital Innovations such as contactless check-in and digital menus
