Properties such as the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, The Mirage Hotel & Casino and Excalibur Hotel & Casino will be allowed to operate at 100% of their capacity with no social distancing required.

However, outside of gaming floors the current 80% occupancy restrictions remain in place; this includes restaurants, pools and other non-gaming areas.

MGM Resorts says “the waiver was granted based on MGM Resorts’ work to vaccinate its workforce”; the company adds it has made vaccinating a top priority.

The operator's s vaccination efforts include on-site vaccinations such as using its Las Vegas Strip and a Community Ambulance as its provider. The company has managed to vaccinate thousands of employees, their families and third-party entertainers.

MGM Resorts has also offers a vaccine incentive campaign, which allows workers to win prizes and a vaccine education campaign that promotes the benefits of vaccination.

CEO & President, Bill Hornbuckle said: "This is yet another major milestone in Las Vegas' incredible recovery and a testament to the importance of vaccination in the effort to fully reopen our community.

“We will continue working to vaccinate as many people as possible and remain vigilant with health and safety protocols designed to protect our employees, guests and community.

"This vital work must continue for us to defeat this virus, and MGM Resorts is committed to doing our part to get it done."
