“We follow the authorities’ recommendations closely and have seen it as part of our responsibility to keep the community going by keeping our casinos open,” Svenska Spel President and Chief Executive, Patrik Hofbauer, said.
“We have followed the limit of a maximum of 500 people and other restrictions that currently apply to restaurant operations. With the new restrictions, it is now necessary to temporarily close all our casinos.
“We hope to welcome our guests back as soon as the situation changes.”
