PA Gaming Control Board set outs protocols to reopen casinos
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has published new measures designed to allow casinos in the state to safely reopen following the shut-down enforced due to novel coronavirus (Covid-19).
The guidelines set out the minimum requirements that must be fulfilled before the PGCB will allow a casino to recommence activities.
“As conditions throughout the Commonwealth improve and the reopening of casinos is authorised, the PGCB desires to assure that re-openings occur in a manner which promote the safety of casino patrons and employees alike as well as assure an environment conducive to proper regulatory oversight,” PGCB executive director Kevin O’Toole said.
To protect guests and staff, all patrons and employees must wear masks when inside a casino property.
Sanitizer stations must be installed at each entrance to the casino for use by staff and guests, while floor markings to encourage social distancing should be placed throughout the property.
