Las Vegas-based Boyd Gaming Corp. will reopen its eighth casino property Saturday in Mulvane, Kansas, near Wichita, the company announced Wednesday.
The Kansas Star casino reopens at 9 a.m. Las Vegas time with gaming initially temporarily limited to slot machines, with table games and live poker remaining closed during the first reopening phase.
The company has initiated its “Boyd Clean” protocols aimed at protecting the health and safety of employees and guests.
“As we reopen our doors, the health and safety of our customers, our team members and the community will be our highest priority,” said Jeff Babinski, vice president and general manager of Kansas Star. “Throughout our property, we will implement comprehensive safety protocols approved by local, state and federal health officials. We are excited for the opportunity to reopen Kansas Star, and we look forward to offering our customers an enjoyable — and safe — entertainment experience.”
The property initiated mandatory face coverings and temperature checks for all employees; temperature checks and screening of all guests upon entry; social distancing requirements on the casino floor and in restaurants; hand-sanitizer dispensers throughout the property; enhanced cleaning and sanitation on high-touch surfaces, including slot machines, table games, handrails and elevator buttons; and additional training for employees.
Boyd opened casinos in Louisiana and Mississippi on Wednesday.
