Casino unions drop MGM from coronavirus safety lawsuit

Las Vegas Sun   ·   Link to Article

The unions allege Caesars only “encouraged” instead of required hotel guests and casino gamblers to use masks and facial coverings to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 respiratory illness.

The unions, representing hotel housekeepers, cooks, bartenders, vehicle valets and others, want the state Legislature to pass a law requiring coronavirus protection measures.

They call for enhanced cleaning procedures and safety training; enforcement of social distance requirements; free virus testing for employees called back to work or exposed to someone with COVID-19; temperature checks to detect fever symptoms of illness; and detailed plans for when a worker contracts the virus.
