Wynn Resorts unveils health and safety plan for reopening

Welcome to the Trusted Resource for Venue Operators.

There can be no doubt, Covid-19 has upended life as we know it. Conducting your business now means new challenges and safedoorsopen.com is here to help. As a resource for venue operators and businesses, we bring you vetted information from top medical and legal sources. From tracking current testing, screening and new technologies to changing legislation, expect a wealth of resources at the ready. All of which give your customers assurance and safety to patronize your venue once more.  

Opening doors to healthy customers.

As business is given the green light to re-open, new requirements abound. With a vaccine or cure likely a year away, we want to help venue operators and businesses like yours navigate the labyrinth of guidelines — technologies for immunity testing, screening and tracking as well as key legislative mandates. We will be closely following sources like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to produce curated data and facts. 
 
What does that mean for you? Peace of mind. Our aim is to help you resume operations ethically while keeping everyone safe. Think of the emerging technologies as a firewall around your premises. Protection that ensures customers are healthy and business is robust. Our commitment: your safety, well-being and success. 

Assuring Healthy Customers

Screening

Key updates. Immunity testing — serology testing — potentially holds the key: identifying whether someone who once had Covid-19 now has the antibodies to protect them may enable safe entry to a venue.

Tracking

We’re on it. Tracking includes devices and wearables that report workers’ health status, delivering a world of data. Here’s the latest.

Legislation

Stay informed. Up-to-the-minute guidelines covering the legal aspects of jurisdictions, technologies, dates and industries.

Breaking Developments

Recently announced: here’s a quick synopsis of breaking developments that could impact venue operators like you.
