    It seems like every hotel checks your temperature before allowing you to check int. What would happen if you developed a fever after you checked in? Would they remove you from your room? Could they?

    Most hotels are NOT checking temperature.

    At Wynn and Palazzo/Venetian, temperature is checked as you walk thru a scanner. There is a person watching on a computer screen as you walk thru and I would assume they would stop you if your temperature registered above whatever threshold they have set.

    Yes, they also check your temperature at many Caesars properties, if not all. The big question is this: what happens if you're on a one- or two-week vacation in Las Vegas, and you catch COVID-19, and the hotel knows about it? Will then remove you from the property? What do you do? Now you're sick with COVID-19 and no hotel will let you in and no airline will let you fly home.

    I didn't walk through all the Caesars or MGM properties, but from the ones I went through unless the one (if that) security guard at the entrance has some sort of super powers they are not checking temperatures of people on the way in. There's just way too much volume of people coming in / out. The security guards at the Cosmo entrances are definitely not in possession of technology which is scanning temperatures. Maybe there's other people hiding behind the walls looking at that, but if so then somebody could easily get quite a far ways inside before being removed, which kinda defeats the purpose of scanning people as they enter.

    I'm not talking about temperature checks when you walk into the casino. I'm talking about checking into and staying at the hotel. At check-in, I think all Caesar's properties scan your temperature. I would be surprised if MGM did not do the same thing. Didn't they scan your temperature at the Cosmo when you first checked in?

    This is from the Cosmo website at https://www.cosmopolitanlasvegas.com/health-and-sanitization-guidelines

    In the event a guest has a confirmed case of COVID-19, the guest’s room will be removed from service and undergo enhanced sanitizing and cleaning measures. The room will not be returned to service until it is deemed safe.

    This implies that they remove you from the property if you test positive for COVID. What do you do then? No hotel will admit you and you can't fly home.

    This is from an article on May 30, so it's probably out of date. But it also implies that the hotel will remove a guest from their room if they test positive for coronavirus: https://www.reviewjournal.com/busin...eyes-in-the-sky-at-las-vegas-casinos-2039614/

    If the visitor still shows a fever, the guest will be sent to a separate holding area where he or she can get immediate transport to a hospital via 911 or be counseled by a medical professional on site or via telemedicine. The visitor then can either leave by medical transport to a hospital or can go to one of 10 nongaming hotels set to quarantine tourists who could have the coronavirus.

    You're asking a lot of "what if" scenarios that I'm not sure anyone here can really answer. Unless someone here has first hand experience of how a hotel actually handles a guest with a fever, probably the info on the websites is the best anyone can reference. Keep in mind though having a fever and having covid are two totally different things.

    Could you explain the underlying concern that you have? Are you actually planning to fly to Vegas and stay for 1 or 2 weeks at multiple properties? Maybe the easiest thing is to not do that and limit a trip to less time. Personally, I was there for 5 days over Labor Day weekend and did just fine.

    I generally travel to Vegas 8-10 times per year and stay about four days. The past trip (last week) I was wondering what would happen if I caught a fever. That's not a far-fetched scenario: only one "what if". Also, it doesn't have to be COVID: any fever would be problematic. Play that out in your mind: you check out of the hotel and head to McCarran but you're denied boarding at the gate because of the fever. What then? You can't go back to any hotels on The Strip because they screen temperatures at check-in. What would you do?

    I see what you’re saying... I would guess you’d have to go to a non-gaming hotel (where they don’t check temps) and wait until your fever and any obvious symptoms go away before you’d be allowed to board a plane. If it ended up being covid, you’d quarantine. That would stink, to say the least!

    Our temps were scanned by a tall scanning “gun” on top of a pole, each time entering Wynn, Venetian and Palazzo. There were pairs of security guards at each station.

    We saw a woman get stopped at Palazzo for being too hot. They asked her to sit down for a few minutes to cool off. We saw her later, so she must’ve passed.

    >> non-gaming hotel (where they don’t check temps)

    Is that true? They don't do temperature screenings at the non-gaming hotels?

    I guess the other option would be to rent a car and drive home: 2,000 miles for me. That would also stink.

    There are designated non gaming hotels for Covid positive tourists. Everyone staying there isolated wouldn't need a temp check since they are covid positive confirmed is how I understood

    Okay, but you would not want to go there if you just had a fever.

    How about the more traditional non-gaming hotels like Marriott, Hilton, etc? I wonder if they check temperatures.

    If they did then it was not obvious.

    Was at Cosmo in sept and no temp checks. People not wearing masks “right” after 11 pm. Some guests in VIP check in not wearing masks at all - no one said anything to them.

    Unless someone has first-hand knowledge/experience with having a fever at check-in or at the hotel, I don’t think you’ll get the answer you’re looking for. If you don’t want to deal with the “what-if” portion or risk dealing with the fallout after being scanned with a high temperature, just don’t travel.

    The smart approach is to figure this out beforehand so when the situation happens, you'll make better decisions and not get locked up in a hotel filled with COVID-positive people.

    That's my understanding as well. In addition, I think a fever on its own is a red flag but not an absolute bar. Unfortunately, the list of symptoms keeps expanding to the extent that almost everything is on there. I think "fatigue" is on the list; I've been tired for 20 years. But testing is readily available, including a walk-up site at Thomas & Mack. If you test positive, whether you can go to the casino is the least of your problems.
