Casino in England opened from July 4, 2020 within the framework of strict COVID-19 measures


The UK Betting and Gambling Council said that following government confirmation for the hospitality and leisure industry, which received permission to reopen from 4 July, casino establishments have confirmed that they are ready to reopen in line with strict Covid-19 measures.

Reportedly, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, which led to the closure of all UK casinos in mid-March 2020, a number of coronavirus measures are now being implemented, including hygiene and social distancing protocols. Listed on hygiene protocols, casinos will provide customers with hand sanitizer upon entering the casino, before and after a board game session. Casino customers can count on social distancing. Also, to reduce the risk of infection, visitors will be offered face masks on request, and bandwidth restrictions on board games will be set.

In addition, to ensure continued social distancing, players can expect their local casino floor plans to be redesigned with new designs to ensure proper social distancing. Cleaning and disinfection will be carried out on slot machines and ATMs after use or at least once an hour.

Michael Douger of the UK Betting and Gambling Council, which represents casinos and betting shops, commented on the post:

“Nothing is more important to the casino sector than the safety of staff and customers. I know that casino operators work tirelessly to ensure that every possible measure is taken when reopening for business to ensure the health and safety of everyone who enters the premises. Casinos make a significant contribution to the economy, including through taxation and employment, as part of the leisure, hospitality, entertainment and tourism sectors. “
