LAS VEGAS – Bally's hotel-casino has a reopening date.
“We continue to see solid customer interest in visiting Las Vegas this summer," said Tony Rodio, CEO of Caesars Entertainment, in a statement.
The opening will follow the return of Caesars Palace, Flamingo, Harrah’s, Paris and the gaming floor at The LINQ Hotel.
Along with the property's Blu Pool, many restaurants will return:
Bucca di Beppo
Bally’s Food Court
All employees required to get tested
In response to a spike in coronavirus cases recorded across the country, Caesars Entertainment has required all employees in Southern Nevada to get tested.
"We thought mandatory testing would be a good way to identify employees who might be positive for COVID-19 without knowing it and wouldn’t realize they could be spreading the virus at work," the company said in a statement.
Workers at Caesars Palace, Paris, Flamingo, Harrah's and Nobu have until July 17 to get tested.
"They will be removed from the schedule if they fail to do so," the company said.
