"We remain focused on responding to the pandemic with effective health and safety protocols.

"Our domestic liquidity, excluding MGP and MGM China, remained substantial at $4.5 billion as the Company worked diligently to significantly reduce our cash outflows during the third quarter," said Corey Sanders, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer of MGM Resorts.
