Crown Melbourne will reopen its hotel and food and beverage operations from Friday but gaming facilities will remain closed.
Australia.- Crown Melbourne will reopen its hotel and food and beverage facilities on June 11 after a two-week lockdown but the Victorian Government has not granted the casino permission to resume its gaming activities.
The venue closed under Victoria’s latest lockdown after the state recorded six new Covid-19 cases in the last week of May.
Crown said it would continue to financially support staff who remain stood down, including the majority of gaming operational staff, by paying an additional discretionary payment. This includes eligible casual staff.
Mask rules will be eased slightly in Melbourne, but masks will still be required inside and in outdoor setting where itis not possible to ensure 1.5 metres’ distance between customers.
The 25-kilometre radius is back, so Melburnians cannot travel further than that distance from their homes.
Apart from casinos, gyms, amusement parks, dance studios and nightclubs will also remain closed.
