The Las Vegas Boulevard resorts will return to 24/7 operations on March 3.
“As we start out to see positive signals around the public’s sentiment about touring, coupled with important progress on the vaccination entrance and lowering COVID-19 circumstance figures, bringing Mandalay Bay, Park MGM and The Mirage back to full-week functions is an significant action for us,” Monthly bill Hornbuckle, MGM Resorts’ CEO and president, said in a assertion Wednesday. “We keep on being optimistic about Las Vegas’ recovery and our means to deliver staff members back to operate as organization volumes allow us to do so.”

“We are consistently assessing occupancy stages and modifying operations appropriately,” MGM Resorts claimed in a assertion at the time.

The layoffs came 5 months soon after the pandemic shuttered the Las Vegas Strip and resorts throughout the U.S., bringing the tourism economic system to a halt and placing a vast majority of the hospitality workforce out of work opportunities.
