The country has begun to lift restrictions for businesses and social gatherings.
New Zealand.- SkyCity Entertainment Group has announced it has received confirmation from the New Zealand government that it can now return to regular operations without any Covid-19 related restrictions.
New Zealand officially began to move towards “alert level 1” on Monday, after not reporting any new active cases of Covid-19 infection.
This stage allows venues to remove restrictions on mass gatherings and physical distancing requirements.
Graeme Stephens, Chief Executive Officer of SkyCity Entertainment Group, said in a statement to the press: “We are extremely excited to be welcoming all SkyCity customers back to our precincts. It will be fantastic to be busy again and able to have the public enjoy the many different facets of our properties.”
“SkyCity remains committed to maintaining robust health and safety standards to manage the risks associated with Covid-19 and will be encouraging customers to maintain contact tracing via the Government’s NZ Covid Tracer app.”
Over the next few days, all SkyCity casinos except the Wharf in Queenstown will return to normal business hours, as will the majority of SkyCity’s restaurants and the Sky Tower.
It comes as good news for the New Zealand operator, which recently lost a battle in its attempt to replace Blackjack tables with electronic machines.
