Popular casino venue in Maryland Live! Casino & Hotel has announced that it is set to re-open under a robust and comprehensive health and safety plan to assist with keeping customers safe at its property.
The plan, known as the Play It Safe Plan, is designed to provide extended cleaning and awareness at its casino and hotel properties with social distancing and health and safety measures with frequent and thorough sanitisation.
In addition, the company will be capping the customers at its hotel and casino so that there are reduced numbers in the properties at any one time.
Rob Norton of Cordish Companies, which owns Live! Casino & Hotel Rob Norton commented on the plans:
“We are eager to bring back our Team Members and entertainment to our guests, and we are fully committed to doing so responsibly with the well-being of our Live! family as our top priority.”
The new Covid-19 prevention plan has been compiled from information and data, including guidelines and recommendations, from health officials in the region as well as best practices for gaming and hotels.
According to reports, the venue is expecting to run at between twenty-five and fifty percent occupancy in order to provide enough room for social distancing.
On the casino floor of the establishment, players can expect to experience a series of special Covid-19 adjustments, including: removal of some slot machines, transparent screens between slot machines and table games such as roulette and blackjack, physical distancing, thorough sanitisation of surfaces and chips, hand sanitising stations at various points and signage to indicate correct spacing.
“We are dedicated to providing a safe and healthy entertainment experience for everyone who comes through our doors. We are fully ready to re-open our facility and bring back our Team Members along with much needed jobs and taxes to Maryland as soon as government authorities allow us to do so.”
In addition, the firm has stated that employees at its properties will be required to wear face masks and face masks will also be provided to guests. At present the company is currently implementing an enhanced Covid-19 training programme for staff upon their return.
