Wynn Las Vegas is among the first resorts in the world to become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide. The comprehensive facility verification helps ensure that guests can book with confidence at a resort that has consistent and robust health safety procedures in place.
"We have worked tirelessly to develop rigorous health and safety practices to ensure that our guests feel safe when visiting," said Marilyn Spiegel, president of Wynn Las Vegas and Encore. "This verification is a testament to our efforts as we continue to offer our guests the latest health safety advancements and the very best five-star resort experience."
The Sharecare Health Security verification comes with an easily identifiable "seal of approval" – the Sharecare VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide badge – based on a hotel's compliance with expert-validated best practices that minimize the risk and impact of COVID-19 and potential future public health events.
Developed by Forbes Travel Guide, the global authority on hospitality excellence, and digital health industry leader Sharecare, the comprehensive verification covers more than 360 standards across health and hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees. Hotels are required to verify their health protocols on an ongoing basis to ensure continued compliance with the most up-to-date global health standards.
"The pandemic has made it clear that hotels and resorts must, first and foremost, assure guests of their safety," said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. "By becoming VERIFIED™, Wynn Las Vegas has demonstrated its commitment to creating a culture of accountability and following global best practices to heighten health security, certified by a third party."
Wynn Las Vegas has worked closely with a team of leading medical and public-health professionals to create its clear and transparent Health and Safety program based on the most effective practices available.

Wynn Las Vegas recently opened an onsite COVID-19 vaccination center in conjunction with University Medical Center. This unique partnership was formed to increase distribution of the vaccine throughout Las Vegas, and to assist in the state's recovery from the pandemic. In the coming weeks, the resort will debut an onsite COVID-19 testing lab that will offer PRC testing, known as the "gold standard" of tests for its accuracy in detecting the virus, to employees, hotel guests, and meetings and convention groups.
