“Our goal is to make Vin Las Vegas a safer place for our guests and staff to go outside their own homes by implementing our surveillance test program and establishing a strong internal communication tracking effort,” said Matt Madox, CEO of Vin Resorts.
As part of its efforts to find out the relationship, groups of 700 employees are tested every two weeks. In total, there are 548 positive cases – resulting in a positive ratio of 3.6%, the company said.
Of the positive tests, 51 occurred before the resort reopened.
“The company has seen a significant downward trend in virus positive rates since launching its multifaceted pre-employment and surveillance testing programs,” a VIN report said.
In a recent round test, only one in 285 employees tested positive. The company said 98% of employees tested positive were infected with the virus outside of work. Vin said 10 employees are fully committed to looking for positive employee cases.
Since reopening in June, the resort on The Strip has catered to more than 500,000 guests, six of whom have tested positive for COVID-19, the company said.
In Clark County, Las Vegas, the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services reported more than 63,300 cases of the corona virus and 1,309 deaths as of Thursday.
