The Indiana Gaming Commission is allowing Hoosier casinos to reopen next week under certain conditions. Our partners at WFYI report the venues will be allowed to open June 15 at reduced capacity after submitting health and safety plans to the state.
The casinos’ plans include daily health screenings for employees, patrons and vendors, as well as deep cleaning and sanitizing procedures. Additionally, employees will not be penalized for missing work if they have symptoms of COVID-19 or test positive for the disease, according to WFYI.
Casinos will also reduce the number of gaming positions and players at table games will be required to wear masks, in addition to all employees on the casino floors.
The reopening is contingent on the state moving to Stage 4 of Governor Eric Holcomb’s Back on Track plan, which is tentatively set for June 14. The governor has not yet made the move official.
