Macau casinos have introduced special rules for guests and staff
33 of 39 casinos have opened in Macau after a 15-day quarantine, but now gambling establishments operate special rules. The Bureau of Gambling Inspection and Control (DICJ) has made it mandatory for all guests and employees of establishments to wear medical masks. The agency also required each casino management to limit the number of players at the tables of roulette, blackjack, baccarat and other games.
DICJ Inspector Joe Wong said that the staff of one casino filed a complaint about the non-compliance of the gambling establishment. According to him, the owner did not provide medical masks to employees. The official noted that the situation was resolved after the intervention of the commission.
Another casino has been flagged by the regulator for not properly sanitizing chips. Such an order was also issued by representatives of the gambling supervision bureau in order to prevent the spread of infection among visitors. Joe Wong noted that the agency will conduct regular inspections to ensure that these requirements are met.
In early February, the Macau governmentclosed all gambling establishments in the region for 15 days . The reason was the spread of the coronavirus Covid-19. The amount of losses from the forced interruption in the operation of the casino is not yet known.
