All company and lease partner team members at six of Station Casinos' properties will receive both antigen and antibody COVID-19 tests before returning to work.

S

tation Casinos announced Wednesday it has begun company-wide COVID-19 testing for all company and lease partner team members. The company started at six of its properties and according to a release, the testing will be processed in conjunction with MedicWest/AMR and Quest Diagnostics.

First to reopen will be Red Rock, Green Valley Ranch, Sante Fe Station, Boulder Station, Palace Station and Sunset Station properties, together with its Wildfire division, when permitted to do so by the governor's office.

Station Casinos will assess the performance of those first-to-open properties before reopening the Palms, Texas Station, Fiesta Henderson and Fiesta Rancho properties.

The full cost of the tests will be paid for by Station Casinos, even if the team member is not enrolled in the company's health care plan.

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak closed all nonessential businesses including casinos on March 17, and on May 9, he allowed dine-in restaurants that are not in a casino to reopen for dine-in service with COViD-19 precautions in place. His new order remains in effect until May 30.

If coronavirus cases continue to decline and hospital capacity to treat new cases continues to remain available, he may move into the next phase of reopening the state for business. In the past, he’s said that casinos may reopen in phase three or four of his plan. So far, there is no date released for casinos to reopen.
