The number one priority at Borgata is the health and safety of our guests and employees. Throughout the last several months, the resort has worked closely with MGM Resorts to employ a Seven-Point Safety Plan to ensure that everyone can “do Borgata” safely. Michael Schultz, Borgata’s Chief of Security, was instrumental in the implementation of the resort’s new safety measures. We sat down with him to discuss some of the changes that guests will experience as they come back to Borgata.
For guests who might be interested in visiting Borgata during this time, what’s the most important thing that you’d want them to know before coming to the property? At Borgata, the health and safety of our employees and our guests is our number one priority.
What is the mask policy at Borgata? All employees and guests are required to wear masks in public spaces. Should a guest or employee not have a mask, we’ll provide those free of charge.
What other health policies have you enacted for guests and employees? We conduct health and temperature screenings for both employees and guests. Should an employee or guest answer “yes” to any of the health screening questions, or register a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, they will not be permitted access to the building and will be directed to follow up with their primary care physician for assistance. We have also implemented Borgata’s “B Clean” team, who will be working in guestrooms and on the casino floor to ensure high-touch surfaces and common areas are given the utmost attention with regards to cleanliness.
Tell us about the hand washing stations that have been installed. We strongly encourage good personal hygiene. We’ve installed custom build hand washing stations, designed by MGM Resorts, conveniently located on the casino floor. Each station has four sinks, separated six feet apart, and each sink has contactless faucet, soap dispenser, and paper towel dispenser.
Where can guests find hand sanitizer: We’ve deployed over 60 hand sanitizer stations, which are contactless and located throughout the facility.
