3 Las Vegas MGM resorts to resume 24/7 operation, anticipating increased travel

The MGM Grand has since resumed normal operating hours, which Mandalay Bay, Park MGM and The Mirage are scheduled to do next month.

The marquee at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino displays a message after the Las Vegas Strip resort was closed on March 17, 2020. The MGM Grand has since resumed normal operating hours, which Mandalay Bay, Park MGM and The Mirage are scheduled to do next month.

They’re riding the hot hand.

Three major MGM resorts in Las Vegas will resume normal 24/7 operations beginning March 3, the company announced Wednesday.

Mandalay Bay, Park MGM and The Mirage have all been closing at times midweek because of limited demand during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The casinos briefly shut down back in March 2020 but have since reopened with limited capacity.

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak recently rolled back some of those restrictions, with casino floor capacity increasing from 25% to 35% and outdoor dining operating with no capacity limit.

“As we begin to see positive signs around the public’s sentiment about traveling, coupled with important progress on the vaccination front and decreasing COVID-19 case numbers, bringing Mandalay Bay, Park MGM and The Mirage back to full-week operations is an important step for us,” MGM CEO and President Bill Hornbuckle said in a press release.

More than 4,700 people in Nevada have died from COVID-19, with almost 3,700 of those deaths occurring in Clark County, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins. The state’s daily case count peaked at over 3,400 on Jan. 7 but has since dropped to around 500 new cases per day over the past week.

Emmy Award winner Ashley Nicole Black is one of the writers and stars of HBO’s comedy series, “A Black Lady Sketch Show.” She recently was surprised to hear that Georgia politician Stacey Abrams said she’d want Black – or actress Viola Davis – to play her in a biopic. “I was in shock,” said Black. “I’m such a big fan of (her) and her work. So the idea that she likes my work as well is very humbling. And to even be mentioned in the same breath as Viola Davis? I’m not worthy!” Black stays in touch with her fans on Twitter (@ashleyn1cole) and Instagram (@ashnb1).
