Station Casinos LLC (the “Company”) announced today extensive new health and safety standards and protocols, as it prepares to reopen its properties when permitted by governmental authorities. As the Company prepares to reopen, the number one priority has been, and will continue to be, the health and wellbeing of its team members, guests and the entire Las Vegas community.

To that end, and working closely with outside medical experts, the Company has enhanced its already high health and cleanliness standards and protocols for all of its properties moving forward. The Company is committed to providing the most safe and secure environment possible for both its team members and guests. Highlights of the new standards and protocols include:

  • All team members will be required to undergo FDA-Authorized COVID-19 testing prior to returning to work and will be tested at regular intervals thereafter.
  • State-of-the-art thermal scanners will be installed at all guest and team member entrances at all resort properties.
  • All team members will be required to wear PPE consistent with health authority guidelines and masks will be available to guests upon entering the property.
  • Touch-free hand sanitizing stations will be installed throughout the property.
  • Enhanced cleaning technologies, such as electrostatic sprayers and hospital-grade disinfectants, will be utilized throughout the property.
  • The visibility and frequency of cleaning will be significantly increased throughout the public and non-public areas of the property.
  • And all team members will receive rigorous training on the Company’s new health and cleanliness standards and protocols.

“When our guests walk through our reopened doors, we want them to know that their health and safety is our first priority,” said Station Casinos President Richard J. Haskins. “At the same time, we also want our team members to know that these changes will help safeguard their health as well, whether interacting with guests or each other.”
