Australia.- Less than 48 hours after Crown Perth reopened from a snap five-day lockdown on Saturday, the casino has been forced to close its gaming floor again following a decision by the Western Australian Government.

The gaming floor will remain closed until at least May 8. Bars, restaurants, hotel accommodation, spa, events and conferencing facilities will remain open.

Authorities in Western Australia announced new measures after three cases of Covid-19 were detected in Perth.

Public venues, including community centres, galleries, museums and recreation centres can open with social distancing rules as well as certain indoor and outdoor entertainment venues including theatres, cinemas, and concert halls.

Nightclubs, stadiums and casino gaming floors will be closed until at least 12.01am on Saturday 8 May. The use of a facemask is mandatory inside and outside in public locations.

Crown Perth said: “The safety of our guests, our employees and our community is the number one priority at Crown Perth.

“In line with Western Australian Government health directives, Crown Perth’s casino will be closed from 12.30pm Sunday May 2nd 2021 until further notice. Our hotels will continue to operate in a reduced capacity”.

WA Relationships Australia has recently called on Western Australia’s Royal Commission probe into Crown Perth to reduce the casino’s opening hours.
