Thermal cameras, a full time staff of emergency medical technicians and electrostatic sprayers have all been announced as part of Venetian's reopening protocols amid the COVID-19 pandemic, reports USAToday.

The Las Vegas resort has not announced a reopening date, although Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak's current shutdown order expires on April 30. So far, all reservations at The Venetian have been cancelled through May 31.

Here's a look at some of the cleaning and safety protocols guests can expect when the Venetian reopens on the Strip: 

Thermal cameras will monitor every resort entrance for "discreet and non-invasive" temperature checks. Anyone with a temperature at or over 38 degrees Celsius will be subject to secondary screening. Those confirmed to have a fever will receive a medical assessment and be directed to appropriate medical care.

A staff of approximately 25 certified EMTs will be available 24 hours a day. A third of that staff will be on site every day.

New electrostatic sprayers will be used to spray hospital-grade disinfectant on high-touch surfaces during off-peak hours including hotel lobbies, public spaces and offices. These machines will also be used also used in the convention centre to disinfect dispatch offices, bell desks, luggage storerooms, belts, bell carts, porte cocheres, sidewalks and the drop-off/pick-up areas.

UV lights will decontaminate shipments arriving and leaving the receiving dock, mailroom, and warehouse.

Sterilray disinfection wands will be used at all resort-operated retail locations to disinfect surfaces.
