The Bahamas will reopen casinos in July with hygiene measures although the country has no Covid-19 cases.
Bahamas.- Authorities in Bahamas have decided to allow the reopening of all casinos in July.
The Royal and Harbourside Resort, on Paradise Island, is scheduled to reopen July 7 and The Cove casino on July 14. Both properties are managed by Atlantis at Paradise Island Resort and Casino.
The company says the plan is to reopen in several phases. It has partnered with Cleveland Clinic to create the Atlantis Clean & Safe Promise programme.
It is intended to ensure the health and safety of the guests and employees with additional cleaning and sanitation policies.
There are currently no Covid-19 cases in the Bahamas, but the group is still preparing to try to ensure any potential spread is contained.
President and managing director of Atlantis Paradise Island, Audrey Oswell, said: “The Atlantis Clean & Safe Promise is our commitment to working with global health experts to provide a safe and healthy environment for everyone who enters our doors. We can’t wait for guests to join us again for the unforgettable Bahamian experience that sets Atlantis apart as the most remarkable destination resort in the world.”
Atlantis is planning to reopen most of its amenities, including the casinos, indoor and outdoor dining venues, pools, spa and fitness centers, venue halls, while tightening hygiene and social distancing measures.
