The criteria the Culinary Union uses as a form of key safety indicators include:

  1. Cleaning of guest rooms on a daily basis, a requirement that, out of the 36 casinos in Las Vegas the union tracks, only two, Cosmopolitan and El Cortez are fulfilling;
  2. Mandatory testing before returning to work for all workers and regular testing thereafter, a condition 14 out of the properties among which Aria, the Bellagio and Caesars Palace fail to meet, with another 11 failing to provide any info at all;
  3. Providing adequate personal protective equipment (PPE) for employees;
  4. Enforcing physical distancing and other measures aimed at virus spread prevention;
  5. Mandatory facial mask policy for guests, and;
  6. A safety plan to be posted by each casino company on a public- facing website, a simple requirement Binion’sCircus Circus Las Vegas and Four Queens are so far failing to comply with.

The Culinary Union that is the largest labour organization in Nevada, was among the most active even before the beginning of the health crisis, seeking collaboration with casino operators regarding the possible effects of a coronavirus outbreak.
