Caesars Entertainment Corp has implemented a universal mask policy across all of its properties starting Wednesday, June 24, 2020, according to a company announcement.
The mask policy will require that everyone indoors at its properties across the Caesars network will be required to wear masks at all times, except when eating or drinking.
It applies to all employees, vendors, contractors, guests, and passersby in properties. Previously, only employees as well as guests at table games were required to wear masks at Caesars properties.
“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,” he added.
Anyone who refuses to wear a mask, after being asked, will be directed to leave the property.
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 mask requirement will also apply to additional Caesars properties as they reopen in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Illinois, and Ontario.
