Marina Bay Sands casino reopens with 2 patrons limit per gaming table
Following resumption of casino operations, “each gaming table will adhere to stricter requirements, including two patrons per table”.
Marina Bay Sands casino resort in Singapore said that it had reopened its gaming facilities on Wednesday afternoon following a 52-hour pause for “deep cleaning” due to two casino workers infected Covid-19.
But the statement noted that following resumption of operations, “each gaming table will adhere to stricter requirements, including two patrons per table”.
“Other employees who are close contacts” of the two infected workers had been instructed either “to stay home and monitor their health,” or be “placed on quarantine”.
Those non-gaming facilities that had previously been able to reopen after Singapore’s earlier restrictions had been relaxed, had continued in operation during the casino shutdown.
But the statement noted: “The integrated resort is operating based on revised capacities and stricter safe management measures across property till 13 June 2021, in support of the government’s latest efforts.”
Singapore introduced on Sunday what it termed Phase 2 measures to counter an uptick in Covid-19 cases. The steps are scheduled to run until June 13.
In its update, Marina Bay Sands issued a reminder that staycation at its hotel were limited to two people per room, and that only in-room dining service was available. Attractions at the complex are limited to 25 percent capacity.
All visitors must use the Singapore government’s TraceTogether app or token system when entering the property and before accessing various venues and attractions, noted the update.
