Massachusetts casinos reopening is just around the corner. They are set to resume their operations as early as July 6. However, before you head to your favorite casino in the commonwealth, there are several things you need to know first.
The coronavirus pandemic brought changes to how casinos operate. For instance, casinos in Massachusetts will not have any craps, roulette, or poker when they reopen. Also, blackjack tables will have a limit of three players.
Also, some services will not be available, including coat check and valet parking. Amenities, such as arenas and theaters, will not reopen until further notice. Also, bars will be unavailable during the casinos’ reopening. Players can order drinks while playing, but they can’t carry their drinks around the casino floor.
Although there are restrictions, guests have access to several casino games with some restrictions. Slot machines are available, according to PPH service sources. However, only a few machines will be open to maintain social distancing.
Pay per head experts learned that casinos need to disable some slot machines to create physical distancing or install plexiglass barriers between machines. Also, slot machines with barriers need to be at least four feet from each other.
Restaurants and hotels within casinos are open at the start of phase two of the state’s reopening plan.
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission implemented safety and health guidelines for casinos. Operators need to clean and sanitize public spaces frequently. Also, casinos need to clean chairs and slot machines every four hours.
According to pay per head bookie reports, casinos need to disinfect chips. Also, they need to replace cards. The casino should limit the touching of cards and chips to avoid spreading the virus.
