MGM Mirage Takes On The Swine Flu

Worried about catching the Swine Flu during your next trip to Las Vegas? Worry you not - MGM Mirage has got you covered.

MGMMirage has posted a link to a H1N1 Flu Information Document onto the homepage of some of their websites (we found it on MandalayBay.com) which outlines what they are doing to prevent and prepare for the virus making its way to a craps table or sneeze guard near you.

The money:

MGM MIRAGE officials, under the direction of the Company’s full-time Executive Director of Safety and Health, are closely monitoring developments and are in regular contact with the United States Travel Association, United States Department of Health and Human Services, Centers For Disease Control, and other agencies about the spread of H1N1 flu.

MGM MIRAGE properties have participated in special preparation exercises in the event that specific procedures in relation to the potential spread of H1N1 flu need to be implemented.

Those preparations include methods to distribute health communications, distribute medications, conduct isolations, conduct quarantines, manage employee work conditions, manage public assemblies (such as conventions, concerts, hotel operations), and access community services (health, fire, police, communications, utilities).

MGM could've easily swept the swine flu under the rug, but instead have chosen to be forthright and demonstrate their preparedness. This degree of attention to guest safety is the reason why nobody was seriously injured or killed when the Monte Carlo caught fire in January 2008.

Huge props and kudos to MGM Mirage for taking our health and safety seriously.

American Airlines cancelled my Mexican Cinco De Mayo/24th birthday trip because of the swine flu!

The Swine Flu is just going to take over the world.......
But seriously, there's nothing else for the media to blow up right now and a couple Mexicans happened to get sick so the media said
you know what? Let's make this a pandemic. A few Mexicans are sick but we'll make it look like the whole world is going to end. Everyone will get into a panic, we'll make MILLIONS!!!

"This world wide pandemic brought to you by CNN" ..... who keeps licking the pigs to get the flu in the first place!!!
