Crown Perth has been allowed to resume gaming operations after the Western Australian government eased restrictions.
Australia.- Crown Perth will reopen its doors tomorrow (May 8) after a brief lockdown imposed due to a rise in Covid-19 cases.
The casino operator had been allowed to resume operations on May 1 after a previous lockdown but had to close again less than 48 hours later.
Although the government in Western Australia has now eased restrictions, Crown Perth will operate at a reduced capacity with a maximum density quotient of one person per two square metres.
According to government rules, Crown Perth has to deactivate every second electronic gaming machine and electronic table game for physical distancing.
Crown Perth also said that hygiene protocols will remain in place and that it will continue to work closely with the relevant authorities in Western Australia concerning Covid-19 measures.
WA Relationships Australia recently called for Western Australia’s Royal Commission probe into Crown Perth to reduce the casino’s opening hours.
Western Australia’s Royal Commission will decide if Crown is suitable to continue holding a casino gaming licence for the venue. An internal report is expected to be delivered by June 30 and the final report by November 14.
