SAHARA Las Vegas has released a comprehensive outline of health and safety protocols under the resort’s SAHARA Cares program that will be implemented upon re-opening following the government-mandated closure of the property on March 17 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The outline details enhancements to the resort’s sanitation protocols along with new social distance considerations. SAHARA Las Vegas collaborated with experts to establish hundreds of additional practices to minimize risk for guests and team members.

“The health and safety of our guests and team members is our number one priority,” said Paul Hobson, SAHARA Las Vegas senior vice president and general manager, in a statement. “In addition to the enhanced cleaning practices, we have developed new service initiatives designed with the wellbeing of our guests in mind. We recognize the ongoing need to stay informed regarding the latest recommended protocols and resources to deter the spread of the virus. We are committed to ensuring both our guests and team members can feel safe when they come to our resort.”

When the resort reopens, the live gaming experience will include less players at each game with the appropriate distance between games; players of live table games must wear facemasks; and there will also be increased sanitization of table rails, chairs, dice, and chips in addition to changes in procedures to minimize player touching of cards.

SAHARA Las Vegas continues to follow the orders of Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak and anticipates a phased approach to re-opening.

SAHARA Las Vegas is a resort and casino with 1,615 guest rooms and suites in three distinctive towers. There are two rooftop pools and a collection of acclaimed restaurants, bars and entertainment venues. For more information, visit
