Philippines.- Solaire Resort & Casino has published a protocol to reopen its Manila venue at 30 per cent capacity.

The operator says its protocol goes above and beyond the requirements of the Philippines health authorities.  

It plans to gradually expand capacity while maintain social distancing measures.  

Solaire has drawn up the measures after the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) confirmed that some casinos in Manila had been allowed to reopen at 30 per cent capacity on a trial basis.  

The operator will accommodate gaming tables and slot machines on the gaming floor to allow social distancing.  

It will include custom-built safety shields for tables and slots to be rolled out in phases.

Solaire will also implement contactless payment options, disinfection chambers for guests and restaurant menus accessible by QR code. 

Screens on the gaming floor will display a safety video to players, while staff will be instructed to assist patrons in complying with regulations.  

Workers will also undergo rapid antibody and PCR testing. Staff will have to wear fae masks and present a daily health declaration form.
