The Cosmopolitan hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip has confirmed that at least 2 of their employees have tested positive for COVID-19.

“Last week, we were notified that two employees of the Concierge team received a confirmed positive coronavirus test. Upon being made aware, the resort took immediate action, reporting directly to the Southern Nevada Health District to begin the process of contact tracing to inform those employees and guests who may have potentially been exposed. Additionally, the concierge office has since undergone a thorough disinfecting and sanitization process led by certified experts, American Technologies, Inc.

The safety and security of our guests and employees remains our top priority, and we will continue to enforce the resort’s health and safety standards that meet or exceed those set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Southern Nevada Health District, the State of Nevada and the Nevada Gaming Control Board.”
