How is The Venetian Resort responding to COVID-19, commonly referred to as novel coronavirus?

Last Updated: March 10, 2020 at 4:30 p.m. PDT

The health and safety of our team members and guests is our utmost priority. We, like all of you, are closely monitoring the developments regarding COVID-19. Our Emergency Management Team works closely with local officials and we continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) for local direction.

We always perform routine environmental cleaning and we adhere to the recommendations set forth in the U.S. EPA Emerging Pathogen Policy regarding cleaning and disinfectants. In addition to our usual cleaning procedures we have dedicated staff to focus exclusively on the safeguards we are putting in place throughout the resort, these include:

  • Additional restroom attendants to wipe down counters and stalls with disinfectant.
  • Additional staff to disinfect high touchpoints more regularly including escalator rails, elevator buttons and handrails.
  • Hand sanitizing stations readily available throughout the resort, Congress Center and Sands Expo Convention Center.
  • Attendants stationed next to each escalator handrail within the Congress Center and Sands Expo Convention Center to wipe them down during conference hours.
  • In the casino we have brought in additional team members to disinfect slot machines, pits and chairs on a consistent basis.
  • In the poker room we have team members on hand to wipe down all armrests with disinfectant between games.

We are encouraging our team members and guests to take the same precautions against COVID-19 that are taken to combat the common cold and flu viruses. We encourage our team members and guests to adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 30 seconds.
  • Refrain from shaking hands.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Properly discard tissue after use.
  • Regularly clean and disinfect all equipment including your tools, phones, keyboard, mouse and work station.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are visibly sick.
  • Stay home from work (or in your suite) if you have a fever or are exhibiting cold or flu symptoms and contact your doctor, or if you are at the resort, call the front desk and request assistance from a resort EMT.

We are prepared to follow any additional protocols or guidance from CDC and SNHD, as they are made available.


TI Las Vegas Health & Safety Policies

Treasure Island Hotel & Casino ("TI") is focused on the health and safety of our guests and employees.  We are closely monitoring government policy changes and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Nevada Gaming Control Board as well as federal, state and local government mandates and any other public health advancements, and will continue to make changes as necessary or appropriate to our protocols and procedures.

TI uses cleaning products and protocols that meet all CDC, Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines, which are approved for use and effective against viruses, bacteria and other airborne and blood borne pathogens.  TI continues to work with our vendors, distribution partners and suppliers to ensure an uninterrupted supply of these cleaning supplies and necessary personal protective equipment.

These policies are subject to change, and will be updated as guidance from the afrorementioned agencies evolve.

GUEST POLICY AND PROCEDURES

Security Temperature Screenings: To help provide safety measures for both employees and guests, TI Security will implement a non-invasive temperature scan of all overnight hotel guests upon arrival in designated entrance area(s) where hotel guests will be required to maintain and practice social distancing policies.  In the event screening shows a temperature equal to or greater than 100.4 degrees ("fever"), the guest(s) will be asked to wait in a desiganted area for 15-minutes prior to retesting.  The guest(s) will be denied access to the property only if the second test is also positive for a fever, or pursuant to then-current CDC guidelines.  In addition, based on SNHD guidelines, all guests with a fever will be referred to a medical hotline for assessment.

Social Distancing: Guests are advised to practice physical social distancing by standing at least six (6) feet away from other groups of people while standing in all public areas, and limiting elevator occupancy to four (4) people.  In the event guest issues may arise, TI Security will be contacted to immediately advise guests of social distancing rules.  In addition, plexiglass shields are placed in locations in which frequent face-to-face interactions may take place such as the front desk, cashier stations, etc.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Disposable face masks will be available at the front desk and other various locations on property for guest use.

Safe Casino Gaming: TI will follow all casino gaming and hotel operations guidance as specified by the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

Confirmed Room Sanitization: TI housekeeping ensures thorough cleaning of all rooms and suites before check-in and after check-out.  Daily service will be available only upon request.  To ensure all guests are confident their accommodations have been properly sanitized, a sign will be placed in the room or on the door to confirm all cleaning protocols have been completed.

Hand Washing: All public TI restrooms are equipped with touch free faucets, soap dispensers, paper towel dispensers and hand blowers.  TI encourages guests to follow the hand washing recommendations from the CDC and SNHD by thoroughly washing hands for a minimum of twenty (20) seconds with soap and warm water.

TRUMP HOTELS - Our Commitment to Health and Safety

Trump Hotels has a long-standing commitment to providing impeccably clean properties, with a focus on ensuring the health and safety of our associates, guests and residents. As the Covid-19 situation began to impact our communities in early March, we implemented additional practices and procedures in furtherance of this commitment, following guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as our federal, state and local government, and on top of our already extensive cleaning measures as a luxury, five-star hotel brand.

These practices and procedures include:

Associate Training and Awareness: 

  • In conjunction with Ecolab, we have increased our associate training. In early March, all Trump hotels participated in on-site training conducted by Ecolab's Ecosure team. Training included practical guidance to help reduce the risk of infection related to COVID-19, with emphasis on cleaning, disinfecting, and both personal and environmental hygiene.
  • Associates have also been instructed on CDC recommended social distancing practices, including maintaining at least 6 feet of distance from others when possible.
  • In situations and locations where required or recommended by state or local government, associates have been provided cloth face coverings. 
  • Health & Safety postings emphasizing frequent handwashing and ways to prevent the spread of illness have been posted in areas frequented by associates as a reminder of the importance of good hygiene.  
  • Associates are regularly instructed on the importance of staying at home if they are unwell or if they have experienced a potential exposure to COVID-19.

Cleaning Practices:

  • We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting public areas, including door handles, handrails, bathroom surfaces, front desk surfaces, elevators, and elevator buttons.  We are also cleaning and disinfecting all guest room keys daily.
  • We have selected Ecolab products that are EPA registered, heavy-duty, hospital grade disinfectants.

Sanitizing Stations:

  • Throughout our properties we have positioned hand sanitizers for guests, residents and associates.
