Sands China Ltd. has introduced a new program, “Sands SafeStay” at its Macau integrated resorts. The initiative, developed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, is designed to protect workers and visitors through enhanced health and safety measures, including more stringent cleaning protocols and more contactless services.
The Macau subsidiary of the U.S.-based Las Vegas Sands Corp. runs the Venetian Macao, the Parisian Macao, Sands Cotai Central, the Plaza and Sands Macao.
The new measures include “360-degree sanitization” using hospital-grade disinfectants in all public spaces and common areas, including restrooms, meeting and convention spaces, casinos, restaurants, bars, shopping malls and recreational facilities. Sands’ 12,500 hotel rooms will be thoroughly and routinely cleaned and disinfected, and key cards will be sterilized prior to check-in.
Social distancing measures have been improved through the rearrangement of restaurant tables, slot machines and gaming tables. Occupancy levels of recreational facilities such as the Eiffel Tower, Qube, gondola rides and swimming pools, along with meeting and convention spaces, have been reduced.
