(Venetian Las Vegas)

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The Venetian on the Las Vegas Strip announced reopening protocols Tuesday amid the COVID-19 pandemic, including providing a mask to guests, practicing social distancing on casino floors and conducting thermal screening at hotel-casino entrances.

The Venetian made the announcement with no reopening date in sight, as the resort has canceled all reservations through May 31. 

The Venetian Clean Initiative details more than 800 initiatives that would take place during reopening including cleaning and COVID-19 screening protocols.

Some of the details of the initiative include:

  • Thermal cameras at every resort entry point, with secondary screening of anyone reading 100.4 degrees or more. Those confirmed with a high temperature will be referred for medical treatment.
  • Hospital-grade disinfectant and UV lights will be used in high-touch areas and items like bell carts and luggage.
  • Providing a face mask for all guests. Guests can also use their own face mask, though masks that obscure the whole face are prohibited. Every guest suite will also receive gloves, hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes.
  • Emergency Medical Technicians on site 24 hours a day.

When it comes to social distancing, the Venetian said it will promote distancing on the casino floor, at pools, at meeting spaces and in restaurants.

  • Hotel desks and offices will abide by six feet of social distance.
  • Guest queuing areas, like front desk lines or taxi lines, will have markings to encourage social distancing.
  • Hotel elevators will be limiting to four people at a time.
  • Gondola rides will be capped at four riders.
  • All restaurants and bars will have reduced seating.
  • Meeting and convention areas will have seating separated to accommodate social distancing.
  • Pool seating will be rearranged to accommodate distancing between groups.

The Venetian's full reopening plan can be found online.

Keep LookingUp

I would go to Vegas now. However, I do not want to wear a mask, do not want to see dealers have to mandatory wear masks, do not want my temperature checked etc. I think casinos should have it be that you enter the property at your own risk. I am an adult and can make my own decisions. The mainstream news has over dramatized the CV. Heck Dr. Fauci himself suggested in The New England Journal of Medicine "...that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza...". And, now that even non-confirmed deaths are being added into the total for CV related deaths is ridiculous. Why do they need to skew the numbers? So someone already dying of cancer dies with CV, they are counted as a Covid death?! Talk about medical fraud. And, the fact YouTube is censoring medical professions or people questioning the narrative is straight from Event 201. Locking down sick people is a quarantine but locking down healthy peoe is tyranny.


Nobody wants to visit "This Sucks Ville" With intrusive Temperature scanning that can be well off because of Summer heat, No Buffets, No Conventions, No Shows, and Social distance protocols making a Casino feel like a Hospital / bank trip.

This is why Southwest Airlines vacations,, etc are having hold times of 1.5/HR to cancel pre-paid trips. The Fix will be worse than the virus that caused the closing.

Business needs to remember, if you make it miserable for your customers they WILL NOT be back. No, I am not wearing a useless paper mask while gambling.


I agree. The taking temperature's also is a violation.


And Vegas will go down the tubes if it continues. Can't wait to move.
