LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Representatives for the Sahara Las Vegas said Thursday afternoon that a rumor circulating on social media regarding a planned closure of the property is "completely" false.

According to a statement from the property, the Sahara has no plans to close either temporarily or otherwise.

The property said owner Alex Merulo "remains deeply committed to the project and is continuing with the resorts' $150 million transformation."

The Sahara issued the following statement on the matter:

We typically refrain from responding to internet gossip, however given these current unprecedented times we felt it important to address these rumors head on to reassure our team members and guests,” said Paul Hobson, SAHARA Las Vegas President and General Manager. “We have been delighted to welcome guests back to the resort since reopening on June 4 following the government mandated closure. We look forward to continuing to welcome guests well into the future.
