The Las Vegas Sands Corporation firm is one of the leading USA-based casino and resort firms. The company is based in the state of Nevada where it has been present since its establishment back in 1988. Today, the company’s resorts including gambling-friendly facilities feature all sorts of entertainment and gaming venues alongside accommodation, exhibition venues, meeting spaces, clubs, restaurants, and of course, massive casino floors with hundreds of slots games and table games.
Las Vegas Sands Corporation owns and operates several luxurious venues in Asia and the United States including its most iconic USA-based properties located in the state of Nevada, The Palazzo and The Venetian on the Las Vegas Strip. In Asia, the company owns and manages the iconic Marina Bay Sands facility that is located in Singapore.
Moreover, through its highly successful subordinate Sands China, Las Vegas Sands Corporation also owns several luxurious properties in the former Portuguese enclave, Macau including its Sands Cotai Central, Sands Macao, The Plaza Macao, The Venetian Macao, The Parisian Macao, and Four Seasons Hotel Macao. With so many iconic properties under its wings, Las Vegas Sands Corporation remains the biggest casino and resort-operating company in the world. When it comes to its Nevada-based properties, the company has just recently announced plans about re-opening two of its Las Vegas-based venues sometime in June.
The Venetian and The Palazzo Possibly Re-Opening in June
According to one of the company’s latest press releases, Las Vegas Sands Corporation will be initiating a special program which will test all of its workforces for exposure to the highly-contagious coronavirus. The same report also detailed that Las Vegas Sands Corporation will also recommence business operations at its iconic The Palazzo and The Venetian facilities the next month after it was forced to shut down operation at both venues for eight weeks or two months to help combat the spread of the potentially-lethal coronavirus strain which so far claimed the lives of over three hundred locals.
According to the company’s officials, Las Vegas Sands Corporation has already initiated a protective and safety scheme that regards its workforce. Following this scheme, all individuals who will be returning to work at The Venetian and The Palazzo will undergo testing which will determine whether they have been infected with coronavirus or not. Those who are not affected will return to work.
The American casino operator also revealed that the company will bear the entire costs of these testing even for those workers who are not included in the company’s medical insurance program. According to one report released by the Las Vegas Journal news outlet, Las Vegas Sands Corporation will also make these tests available to everyone who is over the age of thirteen and who live with the company’s workers who will be returning to work very soon at it’s The Palazzo and The Venetian properties.
Offering Voluntary Coronavirus Antibody Tests
According to the company’s officials, Las Vegas Sands Corporation will also offer its staff members at The Venetian and The Palazzo access to coronavirus voluntary antibody tests. The company’s officials explained that these kinds of coronavirus screenings allow individuals to uncover if they have been exposed to the highly-contagious coronavirus strain or not. The antibody voluntary testing will be administered by The PMH Laboratory Incorporated and The Wellness Group inside the company’s Sands Expo and Convention Center while all results remain confidential. Needless to say, the company’s top priority during these difficult times with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic remains the safety and health of its visitors and its workers.
