Pennsylvania –The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) recently released new measures that will allow casinos in the state to reopen safely after the enforced shutdown due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19).
The guidelines released explains the minimum requirements that must be fulfilled before the PGCB can allow a casino to resume activities.
“As conditions throughout the Commonwealth improve and the reopening of casinos is authorized, the PGCB desires to assure that re-openings occur in a manner which promote the safety of casino patrons and employees alike as well as assure an environment conducive to proper regulatory oversight,” Kevin O’Toole, PGCB executive director, said.
