The Mirage Joins Las Vegas Hotels Open After Coronavirus Hiatus

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Mirage resort on the Las Vegas Strip has reopened for the first time since casinos closed in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

MGM Resorts International chief Bill Hornbuckle calls Thursday's reopening a step toward economic recovery for employees and the community.

The more than 3,000-room resort is known for its Polynesian island theme, erupting volcano and Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat attraction.
