USA – A US gambling operator with establishments in Missouri, Alberta and Colorado among others; Century Casinos, has today announced a series of closures to its properties following the risk level of Covid-19 being upped to high in many states.
The firm’s establishments in Canada, Missouri and West Virginia are being closed on a temporary basis ‘to comply with quarantines issued by governments in each jurisdiction to contain the spread of’ coronavirus.
The announcement comes just days after the company closed a number of its other establishments in Poland and Colorado as compliance measures were implemented in the many jurisdictions.
Less than 24 hours ago, Century Casinos also closed its venue in Bath, England indefinitely while ‘the Company continues to evaluate its options for this property, which could include permanent closure or a sale or other disposition’.
Century Casino is an extra addition to the city’s entertainment options. Set across three floors, the casino features a luxurious cocktail lounge with its own balcony overlooking the newly developed Saw Close and the Theatre Royal.
A message to the public was issued on the casino’s website:
“To our valued guests, The safety and well-being of our employees and guests is our highest priority. Century Casinos, Inc. temporarily closed Century Casino Bath in Bath, UK as a precautionary measure to avoid mass gatherings in Bath, UK.
