Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa will reopen on 26 July

14 July 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa – an MGM Resorts International luxury resort and casino – will reopen to the general public at 10 a.m. on Sunday, 26 July following its closure earlier this year amidst the coronavirus crisis. A hosted, invitation-only event will take place ahead of the public reopening on 23 July. Borgata’s amenity offerings initially will be limited with plans to open additional venues in the coming weeks and months.

“Following the Governor’s directive to postpone indoor dining, we took a step back to reassess our reopening date to ensure we could give our guests the world-class experience they expect from us, safely,” said Melonie Johnson, President & Chief Operating Officer of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. “When we reopen, Borgata will introduce new outdoor dining experiences, as well as a convenient takeout program from several of our fine and casual dining outlets. We appreciate our guests’ and employees’ patience and understanding and look forward to welcoming them back.”

Health & Safety

MGM Resorts’ comprehensive “Seven-Point Safety Plan” is a multi-layered set of protocols and procedures designed in conjunction with medical and scientific experts to mitigate the spread of the virus, protect customers and employees and rapidly respond to potential new cases. As time passes, the company will continue to evaluate and evolve its safety protocols. Key initiatives from the MGM Resorts plan as well as specific to Borgata include:
  • Employee screening, temperature checks and COVID-19 specific training.
  • Masks required in all public areas for both employees and guests (and provided free of charge).
  • Guest screening and temperature checks with limited casino entrance points.
  • A physical distancing policy will be implemented, with floor guides serving as reminders.
  • For areas where physical distancing presents challenges, polycarbonate barriers will be installed, or other measures will be used to reduce risks.
  • Standalone handwashing stations designed by MGM Resorts conveniently located on the casino floor.
  • Guestroom Attendants will wear masks and gloves while cleaning each room and will change gloves between guestrooms.
  • In addition to increased and enhanced routine cleaning of guestrooms and public spaces based on CDC guidance, electrostatic sprayers will be utilized in many large public spaces so that disinfectant is applied efficiently.
  • Digital menus will be available to view on personal mobile devices via QR codes in the resort’s food and beverage outlets.
  • To minimize groups congregating while they wait, restaurant guests will receive text message notification when their tables are ready.
  • MGM has compiled its own internal team and processes to respond if a guest or employee tests positive for COVID-19. We ask that if a guest tests positive after visiting one of our properties, they alert us through a special email address (covid19@mgmresorts.com). We will immediately report any positive test results to the local health department and assist with contact tracing to support the health department investigators.
Per the Governor’s guidelines, the property will adhere to a 25% capacity limit and indoor dining will not be available during this initial phase of reopening.
