Crown Resorts is reopening its hotel and food & beverage facilities at Crown Melbourne on June 11 (today), but its casino will remain closed until further notice.
The announcement comes in accordance with temporary restrictions imposed by the Victorian Government, and arrives two weeks after the venue was required to suspend the majority of its activities as Melbourne went into another Covid-19 lockdown.
Victoria entered an initial week-long lockdown on May 27 due to a rise in cases, but this was extended by another week as further cases were confirmed.
“Crown Melbourne will continue to financially support staff who remain stood down, including the majority of gaming operational staff, by paying an additional discretionary payment. This includes eligible casual staff,” a statement from Crown read.
“Crown Melbourne will continue to work closely with the Government and health authorities in Victoria and will respond to measures taken in relation to Covid-19.”
