On the heels of last week's announcement that it would reopen Caesars Palace and Flamingo Las Vegas on June 4, Caesars Entertainment Corp. now plans to reopen Harrah's Las Vegas on June 5.
The company intends to comply with all reopening and operating directives from Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak, the Nevada Gaming Control Board and public health authorities.
"Initial customer demand to visit the Las Vegas Strip has been much stronger than anticipated, triggering our decision to reopen Harrah's Las Vegas, in addition to Caesars Palace, Flamingo and LINQ Promenade, next week," said Tony Rodio, CEO, Caesars Entertainment. "We look forward to welcoming back guests and employees to a casino resort environment where our enhanced health and safety protocols will be highly visible, including social distancing, frequent cleaning and sanitizing throughout the properties, as well as daily health screenings for all employees who will be at work."
Upon reopening, Harrah's Las Vegas will debut a $200 million multiyear resort transformation with newly renovated rooms and suites, a remodeled casino floor and hotel lobby, Buddy Valastro's PizzaCake and the recently updated Ruth's Chris Steak House.
In addition to the Vegas reopenings, Harrah's Lake Tahoe in Stateline, Nev., announced that it plans to resume operations on June 4, also in compliance with all directives. Some amenities on-property, including ticketed live events, will reopen as appropriate based on customer demand.
Harveys Lake Tahoe will reopen at a later date, with Caesars Entertainment accelerating he property's $41 million renovation of the property, scheduled for completion by late summer. Harrah's Laughlin is also scheduled to open on June 4.
Among the enhanced health and safety protocols include more frequent cleaning and sanitization. Team members will undergo health screenings, COVID-19 training and daily temperature checks. They also will be required to wear masks, which will be provided by Harrah's Lake Tahoe. Guests will be provided masks and will be strongly encouraged to wear them throughout their visit.
