The decision was taken just days after the DICJ ordered all casino workers to wear respiratory face masks.
Macau.- The Macau Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) announced over the weekend that all guests entering any of the 41 casinos in the SAR must now wear a face mask or risk being asked to leave.
According to the DICJ statement, “six gaming companies have requested that all persons entering the casino wear masks from 11pm on 1 February at the request of the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau. If masks are not worn in the casino, the venue has the right to ask the relevant person to leave.”
The decision was taken shortly after the DICJ ordered all casino workers to wear respiratory face masks under provisions of Law No. 2/2004 on the Prevention and Treatment of Infectious Diseases.
Casino operators are also undertaking temperature tests at hundreds of guest and employee entrances in the bid to stop the virus from spreading further.
The new measure was taken after the eighth case of Coronavirus in Macau was confirmed.
