South Florida casino set for reopening after virus closure

June 10, 2020 - 10:16 AM

ORLANDO, Fla. - The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Florida says it will open its doors later this week for the first time since March when coronavirus concerns forced it to close.

The casino resort in Hollywood, Florida will open Friday with requirements that visitors wear face masks and get temperature checks upon entering.

Some table games are being retrofitted with plexiglass shields and gaming chips will be sprayed with a sanitizing solution. Capacity will be limited to 50% and guests and workers are expected to maintain social distancing, according to new guidelines.

The resort says all of its properties have been equipped with air purification and disinfecting systems.

Meanwhile, Disney officials outlined new hotel protocols as they prepare to reopen Walt Disney World resorts next month.

The company said it would devote extra cleaning to high-traffic areas like elevators, escalators, handrails, benches and restrooms. Restaurants and fitness centres will have limits on the number of people allowed in, and cashless options will be emphasized at shops and restaurants, the company said.
