Wynn Resorts said all of its employees will be given the choice of either completing a Covid vaccination or obtaining weekly negative tests, with 60 percent of staff already having received their shots.
“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. Wynn Las Vegas has the Lighthouse Covid-19 Testing Lab – one of the only companies in the United States with its own onsite testing facility.
