After suspending operations for three months since Malaysia's lockdown began on 18 March, Resorts World Genting (RWG) has reopened last Friday as lockdowns ease in the country.

Due to limited capacity, entry into SkyCasino at SkyAvenue and Genting Club at Genting Grand Hotel will be for Genting Rewards members only, according to a notice posted on its website. Public entry into the casino is set to resume as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, Awana Skyway cable car and Genting express buses have also resumed operations.

"We have re-engineered our processes and developed a comprehensive safety plan in line with the government’s guidelines and global best practices," RWG wrote in its announcement.

Enhanced safety measures including social distancing measures, enhanced cleaning and disinfection processes, as well as the deployment of service ambassadors that have been implemented to ensure the health and safety of guests and employees.

RWG has implemented MySejahtera Check-In at all its primary entrances and outlets throughout the resort. Patrons are encouraged to download and register the MySejahtera application prior to visiting the resort.

In Singapore, which entered into Phase 2 reopening last Friday, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands has opened to members of its loyalty programme, #SandsRewards.

Marina Bay Sands-operated F&B outlets will remain closed for now, as will all other venues and attractions such as the Hotel, Casino, ArtScience Museum and Sands Expo and Convention Centre.
