Ho-Chunk Nation is extending its smoking ban all smoking devices. At its Madison casino, the gambling operator has announced to ban all smoking products, including vaping devices and e-cigarettes.
The casino operator has said that with the move they plan to make the casino a clean air environment. The casino had already banned smoking back in 2015.
“This past four years have been successful and no doubt our decision to go smoke-free contributed immeasurably,” Daniel Brown, the executive manager of Ho-Chunk Gaming Madison, said.
“It enabled us to strengthen our customer base by attracting new customers. Additionally, a recent employee survey indicated positive comments from our staff. We strive for a healthy environment for both our guests and our staff.
This decision was a win-win-win for our guests, employees, and business. Everyone acclimates and can appreciate a healthier indoor environment and I feel confident this enhancement will be no different.”
However, the Ho-Chunk Gaming Madison confirmed that it will still maintain an outdoor climate-controlled smoking space separate from the building for people who vape or smoke, according to the release.
“We are intentional in our consideration and accommodation for all of our guests by offering them a comfortable environment,” Brown said.
