Caesars Entertainment Corporation today announced that everyone indoors at its properties across their network will be required to wear masks at all times, except when eating or drinking.
The updated mask policy becomes effective on June 24, 2020 at 12 p.m. Pacific Time and applies to all employees, vendors, contractors, guests and passersby in properties. Previously, all employees plus guests at table games were required to wear masks at thier properties.
“We promised that Caesars would continue to evaluate the latest recommendations, directives and medical science regarding the COVID-19 public health emergency and modify our enhanced health and safety protocols accordingly,” said Tony Rodio, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. “As a result, we are immediately requiring everyone in our properties to wear masks, because the scientific evidence strongly suggests that wearing masks and practicing social distancing may be the most important deterrents to spreading COVID-19 from person to person,” he added.
The company will continue to implement all the enhanced health and safety requirements in its revised operating plans. Also, the Company will take steps to ensure that everyone inside its properties wears a mask. Anyone who refuses to wear a mask, after being asked, will be directed to leave the property.
The universal mask requirement will apply to all of their businesses currently open in Louisiana, Mississippi, Iowa, Missouri, Nevada, and Indiana, as well as tribal properties in Arizona, California and North Carolina. The mask requirement will also apply to additional properties as they reopen in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Illinois and Ontario. The company will continue to open properties in line with regulatory approvals and customer demand.
Among the enhanced health and safety protocols are more frequent cleaning and sanitization. The company has also implemented a health screening program for all employees. For more information on the Company’s health and safety protocols, visit their website.
