Caesars Entertainment has announced that everyone indoors at its properties will be required to wear a mask at all times, except for when eating or drinking.
The updated mask policy became effective on June 24, 2020, and now applies to all employees, vendors, contractors, guests, and passersby visiting the properties. Previously, all employees and guests at table games were required to wear masks.
“We promised that Caesars would continue to evaluate the latest recommendations, directives and medical science regarding the COVID-19 public health emergency and modify our enhanced health and safety protocols accordingly,” said Tony Rodio, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. “As a result, we are immediately requiring everyone in our properties to wear masks, because the scientific evidence strongly suggests that wearing masks and practicing social distancing may be the most important deterrents to spreading COVID-19 from person to person.”
The company will take steps to ensure that everyone at its properties wears a mask, including directing those who refuse to wear one, after being asked, to leave.
The universal mask requirement will apply to all of Caesars businesses currently open in Louisiana, Mississippi, Iowa, Missouri, Nevada, and Indiana, as well as tribal properties in Arizona, California and North Carolina. The new mask requirement will also apply to additional properties as they reopen in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Illinois and Ontario.
