The Venetian will have a team of emergency medical technicians available 24 hours a day to respond to suspected cases of the coronavirus when the property reopens.
Las Vegas Sands Corp., which operates the hotel-casino, announced updated protocols Tuesday for when its Las Vegas properties reopen, sometime after May 31. The protocols, named The Venetian Clean Commitment, include more than 800 guidelines, including the use of thermal cameras, personal protective equipment for employees and enforcing social distancing guidelines.
The resort will have a team of 25 EMTs with one-third on site every day, the company said. If staff is notified of a suspected case of COVID-19, the guest will be directed to medical care by the EMTs, and the property will conduct additional cleaning and disinfecting protocol in areas where the guest had been.
Thermal cameras will be installed at every resort entry point to check temperatures of both staff and guests. Those who have a temperature over 100.4 degrees will undergo a secondary screening. If they still show a high fever, they will “undergo further medical assessment and be directed to appropriate medical care.”
If a guest has a confirmed case of COVID-19, their suite will be removed from service to undergo cleaning by a third-party expert and won’t be returned to service until it is deemed safe.
