MGM National Harbor, Maryland’s biggest casino, will reopen to the general public on June 29, the casino resort announced Tuesday.

“Don’t call it a comeback! We are pleased to share that MGM National Harbor will reopen its doors Monday, June 29 at 6 a.m. ET. We can’t wait to welcome you back, safely,” the resort tweeted Tuesday morning.

MGM, located in Oxon Hill, has made major changes since shuttering on March 16 at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, such as disabling every other slot machine and erecting plexiglass barriers at many of the game tables. Poker, however, will not be available for the first phase of reopening.

Masks will be required at all times, MGM said. Additionally, guests will have their temperatures taken before they reach the casino floor. Some of the restaurants will be reopened, along with several of the bars.

Before the public reopening, MGM will hold a soft opening affair.

Live Casino & Hotel in Hanover, the state’s second-largest casino, will also reopen on June 29.
