Crown Melbourne, the flagship property of Crown Resorts, has got permission to resume some gaming operations from this week with substantial health and safety restrictions.
“We have been working for some time with the Victorian Government and health authorities to determine how we can safely re-open Crown Melbourne and have developed extensive physical distancing and hygiene measures to allow re-opening in a safe manner,” Ken Barton, CEO of Crown Resorts, said.
“We are pleased to be able to commence the process of welcoming back our employees and customers to Crown Melbourne,” Ken Barton added.
Gaming will be limited to VIP patrons in 10 designated areas with a maximum of 10 patrons in each area, and smoking will not be permitted. There will also be a requirement for every second machine to be disabled while no single patron will be allowed on the gaming floor for more than 90 minutes per day.
