Paradise City casino closure extended as more Covid-19 cases discovered

The three-day closure of Paradise City’s casino as a result of a Covid-19 infection of a staff member has been extended until at least September 7 as three more employees have tested positive for the coronavirus.

The three additional cases were discovered through testing on Wednesday and complicate the company’s plan to institute thorough disinfection measures and then quickly reopen.

While it appears that the hotel and resort areas might reopen this afternoon as planned, the latest news can be expected to drive many potential customers away from the facility.

Two of those infected are Chinese nationals working as chefs in a Chinese restaurant, while the other two appear to be Koreans, a staff member of the restaurant and a hotel secretary.

The Chinese restaurant where the cluster has been found is expected to remain closed for at least two weeks.
