The Ministry of Trade and Industry and Singapore Tourism Board have confirmed that Singapore’s two casinos; Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa will be able to open on July 1, operating at 25 per cent of capacity and subject to health and safety measures.
Marina Bay Sands said access to the gaming floor would be restricted to Sands Rewards Club members with Gold status and above, plus Annual Levy Holders.
A spokesperson said: “The casino will also abide by strict safe management measures. There will be limitations on the number of patrons at each gaming table, while seats at the electronic gaming machines and slots will be at least one meter apart. Safe Distancing Ambassadors will be deployed to ensure that there are no bystanders. Customer-facing team members will don masks and face shields, and will sanitize their hands before and after shifts at gaming tables.”
It has trained over 1,000 staff on safe distancing.
Resorts World Sentosa will open its casino and Universal Studios Singapore from 1 July, followed by SEA Aquarium from 4 July.
