According to Macau’s Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau, half of the gaming tables reopened up to date.
Macau.- The Gaming Inspection and Co-ordination Bureau (DICJ) has announced that 3,100 gaming tables are now operational after the forced 15-day closure last month.
The figure means that more than half of all gaming tables remain closed while the Coronavirus crisis continue to impact the sector.
According to the local press, two casinos have yet to re-open: Casino Taipa at Regency Art Hotel – which was scheduled to re-open on 6 March – and the Macau Jockey Club casino which has yet to apply for a permit to re-open.
The Greek Mythology Casino and the floating Casino Macau Palace were already closed before the suspension took place and have yet to resume operations.
Since the reopening, all venues are obliged to take prevention measures to control the spread of Coronavirus including body temperature checks for workers and customers at entrances, the use of a protective mask and preventing entry into casinos individuals who have been in Hubei province in the past 14 days.
Other measures include cleaning and disinfecting, increasing the distance between gaming machines and disinfecting game cards before they are placed on chip racks.
