Wynn Resorts has announced a new COVID-19 vaccination and testing policy for its employees at Wynn Las Vegas. The policy gives employees the option of either completing a COVID-19 vaccination or obtaining weekly negative COVID-19 tests.
Approximately 60% of Wynn Las Vegas employees have already been vaccinated.
“Our primary goal is to create the safest possible environment at Wynn, for both employees and guests,” said Matt Maddox, CEO of Wynn Resorts. “Vaccination rates are increasing throughout the country, and requiring our employees to either be vaccinated, or tested on a weekly basis will make Wynn one of the safest vacation destinations in the U.S”
Eligible employees have been vaccinated onsite at the University Medical Center Vaccination Clinic at Encore since January 18, and today UMC will administer its 50,000th vaccine at Encore. Wynn Las Vegas has since opened the Lighthouse Covid-19 Testing Lab – one of the only companies in the United States with its own onsite testing facility.
The world is bouncing back, or at least coming to grips with the fact that going forward not much will be the same as before. Commendably, this industry quickly understood the need to adapt to a new normal, and that the days of targeting the low hanging fruit of the VIP sector are gone.
Over the years, many of the answers have been remarkably prescient in their forecasts for the near-term direction of Asia’s gaming industry. However, we can safely say that no one came anywhere close to guessing what 2020 may have had in store.
