Covid-19 restrictions dropped for SkyCity properties outside Auckland
SkyCity Entertainment has announced that, except for Auckland, Covid-19 restrictions will no longer be necessary at its New Zealand properties.
This means that the firm’s Hamilton and Queenstown facilities can now operate once again without physical distancing measures and that the general public can return to the casinos.
SkyCity Auckland, however, will continue to operate under restrictions for the time being, until given the green light by the government to resume normal business.
After getting the Covid-19 pandemic under control in the early summer, Auckland witnessed a further outbreak in early August which forced SkyCity to once again suspend operations at SkyCity Auckland. As of August 31 it has been permitted to resume operations under physical distancing and other restrictions.
Singapore police have busted at least two illegal gambling operations in the past week, while across Asia authorities have moved to stamp out illicit activities, from raids on premier league matches in India, to illegal number forecasting in Malaysia.
