South Korea—Paradise Co, the foreigner-only casino operator, announced that all gaming facilities at its Paradise City Integrated Resort will remain closed indefinitely. This was decided after six of its employees tested positive to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) last week.
Paradise City, located in Incheon near Seoul, was ordered to be closed for three days from September 1 after one staff member tested positive for the virus. But that cluster has now increased to at least six resort staff members, including two casino workers.
In an update on its website, Paradise City said it “decided to close the entire facility…as a high-intensity measure for the safety of both customers, employees, and local communities.”
The entire resort will stay closed until September 9, while the casino will remain closed “indefinitely.”
“During the suspension period, we will do our best to prevent the spread of infection by expanding the scope of inspection as well as conducting thorough disinfection and precise quarantine for the entire facility including relevant business site in close consultation with the quarantine authorities,” the company said.
