Macau.- The director of the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ), Adriano Marques Ho, has been visiting the six larger casino operators in Macau to control the implementation of measures to prevent Covid-19 spread.

Operators must ask players and guests for their Covid-19 test results and take their temperature on entry. They must also enforce cleaning routines and provide sanitation elements on the floors among other measures.

Casino workers are also being tested, especially those with frontlines contact with customers. Health Authorities in Macau say about 4,000 staff a day are being tested for Covid-19.

Macau Business reported that head of the DICJ Gambling and Inspection Department, Vong Chi Fu, and the Coordinator of the Macau Health Bureau Disease Control and Prevention Center (SSM), Dr. Lam Chong, had jointly carried out inspections in the casinos.

DICJ says its plan is to conduct “rigorous inspections” and that it will hold regular meetings with concessionaires to evaluate and adapt prevention measures.
