Genting Malaysia has declared that its casinos will remain closed and IR resorts under its Malaysian IR arm, Resorts World Genting (RWG), will operate partially following the new government guidelines amid sudden spurt in the Covid 19 cases in the country.
The Malaysian government has issued new guidelines under its new order titled Movement Control Order (MCO) 3.0, which stipulate that 80% of employees in the public sector and 40% in the private sector must work from home. According to the new order, public transport is limited to 50% capacity and most of the businesses must operate only between 8 am and 8 pm.
The new measures were introduced after the country witnessed a new high of 6976 fresh cases of COVID-19 on Sunday.
Following the new order, RWG released a public statement that the casino would be “temporarily closed from today until further notice” and the working hours of the resort are curtailed to between 8 am and 8 pm until 7 June 2021.
The statement also adds:
“This applies to all our hotels, food & beverage outlets, shopping malls, retail outlets and other facilities,” “Some of our offerings may not be available during this period.”
