Coronavirus: AC casinos taking additional measures

New Jersey casino operators forced to improve preventative measures after first Coronavirus death in the USA recorded in the state.

US.- After the first Coronavirus death in the USA was reported in New Jersey, Atlantic City casino operators have been forced to improve the preventative measures they are taking.

“We have taken proactive measures to help minimise customer concerns including, frequently sanitising surfaces in high-traffic areas, adding hand sanitisers throughout the casino, encouraging good hygiene practices amongst our staff, requiring employees who have traveled to certain areas to stay home for 21 days before returning to work and following all other CDC recommended guidelines,” Tom Pohlman, Executive Vice President, and General Manager at Golden Nugget Atlantic City, said.

MGM Resorts International, which operates the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, also issues a statement regarding Coronavirus.

“We are proactively communicating with our employees on the guidance from the CDC regarding prevention. We have enhanced our cleaning protocols that include placing hand sanitiser dispensing station in high-traffic areas, reinforcing proactive cleaning and increasing the frequency of disinfectant procedures. We continue to follow the CDC’s guidelines and are closely monitoring for updates.”

According to Calvinayre, Boardwalk Hall General Manager, Jim McDonald, said that his staff are working extremely hard to keep the facility clean. “Our cleaning processes are very thorough, we’ll continue to do that as well as additional rounds of cleaning.”
