Australia – Crown Melbourne forced to shut for another six weeks as COVID spikesBy Phil - 8 July 2020
Crown Resorts flagship casino in Melbourne will remain shut for at least another six weeks following Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews’ announcement that the city was reentering the Stage 3 lockdown.
Victorians will only be allowed out to shop for food, exercise, work when it can’t be done form home and to care for the elderly or those in need.
Mr. Andrews said: “We know we are on the cusp of something very, very bad. It is simply impossible with case rates at this level to suppress and contain this virus without taking significant steps.”
Crown said in a statement: “Crown’s first priority is the health and safety of its employees, guests, and the community.”
It reopened Crown Perth in Western Australia on June 27.
