Casino unions drop MGM from coronavirus safety lawsuit

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.
