LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — MGM Resorts International announced Friday it will no longer require its fully vaccinated guests to wear face masks at its Las Vegas properties following the new public health guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control yesterday.

The new guidelines say that people who are fully vaccinated are no longer required to wear masks indoors or outdoors.

According to the MGM Resorts news release, “At this time, employees are still required to wear masks while on property, even if they are fully vaccinated. We hope to announce updates to this policy soon.”
