Oneida casinos require face masks in New York
The Oneida Indian Nation has made the requirement after governor Kathy Hochul announced a statewide mask mandate due to the increase of Covid-19 cases.
US.- The Oneida Indian Nation has required face masks at all of its properties beginning today (December 14), following the New York state mask mandate issued by Governor Kathy Hochul. The requirement applies to Turning Stone, Point Place Casino, Yellow Brick Road Casino and Sports Book, as well as The Lake House, Maple Leaf Markets, SavOn convenience stores and all hotels.
The properties have updated their “Safer Together” health and safety plan” due to the recent increase in Covid-19 cases. Visitors at bars or on the gaming floor can drink with a straw beneath their masks. Masks will not be required at restaurants and bars while people are seated and eating or drinking, or at Exit 33 where proof of vaccination is already required to enter.
Smoking will be prohibited on the gaming floor until further notice, but there will be designated outdoor smoking areas. Proof of vaccination can be demonstrated by showing a vaccination record.
