Station Casinos announced today it has commenced company-wide COVID-19 testing for all company and lease partner team members.

All team members will receive both antigen and antibody COVID-19 tests before returning to work. The complimentary testing has commenced at six of the Company’s properties and will be processed in conjunction with MedicWest/AMR and Quest Diagnostics. The full cost of such testing will be paid by the Company, even if a team member is not enrolled in the Company’s health care plan.

As previously announced, the Company will be reopening its properties in phases. First to reopen will be its Red Rock, Green Valley Ranch, Santa Fe Station, Boulder Station, Palace Station and Sunset Station properties, together with its Wildfire division properties, when permitted to do so by governmental authorities. The Company will assess the performance of those first-to-reopen properties before reopening its Palms, Texas Station, Fiesta Henderson and Fiesta Rancho properties.
