The opening of the new Virgin Resorts Las Vegas has been pushed back all over again, with proprietor JC Hospitality citing the “continuously evolving COVID-19 situation.”
The off-Strip vacation resort was at first predicted to open up in November, but that day was pushed back to Jan. 15.
The company did not set a new opening date when saying it was delaying outside of the January target.
Design on the project at the previous Tough Rock on Paradise Street is on time and the delay was “predicated on the latest problems in the current market as it pertains to the pandemic,” JC Hospitality CEO Richard Bosworth reported in a statement.
The pandemic has taken a significant toll on the vacation and tourism business. With customer volume noticeably down, a range of Strip resorts have suspended their midweek lodge operations.
Bosworth explained the corporation is thrilled to introduce the new resort, but the “safety and wellbeing of our guests, companions and workforce customers carries on to be our top rated precedence.”
