Preparedness, Prevention and Response Plan

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our focus at Universal Whisky Experience has been on the health and safety of our customers, our staff, and our communities. In preparing for reopening our events, we are working closely with all our event partners as well as Wynn Resorts on safety protocols, preparedness, prevention, and response plans designed to welcome you back. These plans are comprehensive, multi-layered approach that is fluid and will continue to evolve based on guidance issued by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and federal, state, and local governments.
