Losses of several million dollars, layoffs in spades, the coronavirus epidemic has hit the casino sector with full force, and everyone is waiting for a firm reopening! The gradual deconfinement that we observe almost everywhere on the planet gives hope for an imminent recovery, but it is already certain that it will be slow and strictly supervised between new cases and the desire to return to normal life, an update on the reopening of casinos jdl688 and the health measures implemented.
Covid19: Reopening of casinos
Perhaps very hard hit by the pandemic, the United States will certainly not be the last to force the reopening of their gambling establishments. And for a good reason in Las Vegas, in the city that never sleeps, Mayor Carolyn Goodman militates for some time now for a rapid recovery in the activity of hotels and casinos. It must be said that the epidemic has hit the lives of city residents hard and that the worried workers for their income are eager to get back to work.
The problem is that Carolyn Goodman vaguely plans to set up a control group in the establishments, while admitting that she is not required to respect any health measure on the pretext that “it’s not China, it’s in Las Vegas. ” Statements that have attracted much criticism from health professionals and the Union of Casino Workers, even calling for the resignation of the mayor.
Elsewhere in the country, other establishments have already reopened their doors, such as in Oklahoma, South Dakota or Louisiana, even if it means ignoring the new sanitary measures to be respected. In this reopening phase, only the Angel of the Winds Casino Resort in Washington State seems for the moment to respect the rules imposed by the State within particularly the establishment of a waiting list system for more fluidity.
A difficult recovery
Sanitary measures should certainly weigh heavily on the fluidity of casinos. In particular, it will be a matter of respecting a distance of one meter between each individual, installing Plexiglas plates between the machines, cleaning the devices after each use, and systematically wearing a mask. And already certain problems arise since games such as poker and table games requiring the presence of croupiers greatly complicate the implementation of these sanitary measures. To see anyway if the players will dare to cross the doors of establishments as soon as activities resume.
