GSR Clean: Health & Safety Program

Grand Sierra Resort has developed a comprehensive set of guidelines and procedures to help ensure the highest possible levels of cleanliness throughout the resort. The GSR Clean: Health & Safety Program includes social distancing measures, upgraded sanitation procedures, microbial control, face-covering guidelines, temperature checks, occupancy limits, employee testing, and more. Designed to address the health and safety of our guests and team members, our sanitation response exceeds current standards set by the CDC and local health officials.

In addition to using specialized, CDC recommended disinfectants, we are applying EPA registered, anti-microbial surface protectant to high-touch items like door handles, gaming chips, elevator buttons, and slot machine panels. The groundbreaking product, BIOPROTECT™ Antimicrobial Surface Protectant (https://bioprotect.us/), contains no poisons or heavy metals but effectively aids in preventing microbial contamination on surfaces for approximately 90 days after application. Surfaces will be continuously cleaned to provide additional assurance that a surface is clean.

GSR utilizes bipolar ionization technology to combat tobacco smoke and odor throughout the resort. The Plasma Air (https://www.plasma-air.com/) system naturally neutralizes odors, reduces smoke particulate by 96.3 percent, reduces total volatile organic compounds by 98.6 percent, and reduces bacteria and viruses by 99.9 percent.

Touch-Free Hand Washing & Drying

Grand Sierra Resort is proud to be the first casino resort property in the area to utilize exciting new technology to minimize touchpoints in some of our public restrooms with the Dyson Airblade Wash+Dry system. This unique solution reduces need to guests to move away from the sink to dry their hands. In addition, the air drying process forces air through HEPA air filters before quickly and hygienically ‘scraping’ water from hands.
