Being back open is music to our ears. We have implemented a new set of standards called Safe + Sound that is dedicated to providing a healthy and safe environment for our guests and team members. We will always go above and beyond to take deliberate, careful steps to ensure a rock ‘n’ roll experience for all.

Here are a few examples of what you will see when you find your way back;

Thermal Imaging. Guest and team member entrances are limited to allow our security team to conduct non-invasive temperature checks utilizing thermal imaging. In accordance with CDC guidelines, anyone displaying a temperature of 100.4 or more, displaying a cough, shortness of breath or other symptoms of COVID-19 will be discretely offered a secondary temporal temperature screening. Guests and team members with temperatures of 100.4 or more will not be permitted to enter the property.

Physical Distancing. Guests will be advised to practice proper social distancing from individuals and groups of people not traveling with them while standing in lines or moving around property. There will be signs and floor decals to assist with the guidelines set for social distancing at kiosks, cage/food and beverage counters, entrances and ATM’s.

Sanitation Stations. Hand sanitizer dispensers and sanitizer wipes have been placed throughout the property for guest and team member usage.

Guest and Team Member Health Concerns. Our team members have been given clear instruction on how to respond to and report guests or coworkers who are exhibiting signs of a cough, shortness of breath, or other known symptoms of COVID-19.

As states begin to ease restrictions, we have been observing other casinos as they reopen across the United States. We have also been surveying our Rock Star guests all in an effort to learn and establish new best practices to provide a safe environment for guests and team members to enjoy. We will continue to monitor the property and make changes to adapt to this new environment.

All team members who work in direct guest-service areas will be wearing masks as part of their uniforms to protect themselves, our guests and their fellow team members. Masks are encouraged for anyone on the casino floor.

If you are considered high-risk or if you are experiencing any signs of illness, we ask you to please stay home until you are well.
