MGM Resorts International has announced that Park MGM and NoMad Las Vegas will reopen their doors on Sept. 30 after being closed for COVID-19. They also announced upon reopening that it will be the first-ever smoke-free casino resort on The Strip.
“There is much work ahead as we remain focused on the health and safety of our employees and guests, but this is an important moment for us,” said MGM Resorts CEO and President Bill Hornbuckle.
This milestone as the first smoke-free resort on The Strip, alongside their ‘seven-point safety plan’ to stop the spread of the virus, will help keep guests healthy and safe during the pandemic. According to the CDC, secondhand smoke can cause heart disease, lung cancer or even a stroke among nonsmoking adults. The organization also notes that smoke-free laws can reduce these risks for nonsmokers.
“As we looked toward our reopening, we identified an opportunity to be responsive to recurring guest demand for a fully non-smoking casino resort on The Strip,” said Anton Nikodemus, president of MGM Resorts’ Las Vegas Portfolio. “With an expansive Las Vegas portfolio, MGM Resorts is able to offer an array of options for visitors, all within the MGM Resorts family.”
Completed in late 2018, Park MGM/NoMad is one of the newest destination spots on The Strip. Although amenities and entertainment are limited because of the pandemic, guests can still enjoy their outlet mall. Valet parking will not be available, but free self-parking will be offered to guests. For a full list of available amenities, visit MGMResorts.com.
