Authorities in the Australian Capital Territory have announced an easing of Covid-19 restrictions from Friday, allowing Casino Canberra to reopen on a limited basis.

Australia.- The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) has announced new measures that allow the reopening of Casino Canberra, a venue operated by Aquis Entertainment Limited. According to local media, the ACT is the first Australian jurisdiction to reach a 90 per cent full vaccination rate.

Authorities will ease restrictions from tomorrow (October 29). Face masks will no longer be mandatory outdoors but will remain mandatory indoors, and capacity limits for hospitality venues and major events will be relaxed.

Aquis Entertainment Limited, the company which operates Casino Canberra, has called all of its staff and will hold a meeting in order to prepare for the reopening of the casino. Last year, the casino was shut for almost four months due to lockdown measures, and the company cut around 90 per cent of its total workforce in March.
