As of June 27, Crown Resorts (CWN) will re-start operations at its Perth casino under temporary restrictions from the West Australian Government.

These restrictions include capacity limits based on one person per two square metres, physical distancing between customers at electronic machines, restrictions at table games, and enhanced hygiene protocols.

“Crown’s priority is to the health and safety of our employees, customers and the community. The physical distancing and hygiene measures have been developed in consultation with the Government, Commissioner of Police and Chief Health Officer to allow reopening in a safe manner,” CEO Ken Barton said.

“We look forward to welcoming back many of our employees and customers to Crown Perth,” he added.

In mid-March, Crown put a number of measures in place to help minimise the spread of COVID-19.

This included deactivating every second gaming machine and electronic gaming table at its Casinos.

Distancing at seated table games was also enforced and stand-up games were restricted to five players.

Crown’s casinos weren’t the only department impacted by the coronavirus. The hotelier also announced that its food and beverage, conference, and banqueting facilities were capped at a 450 patron limit.

Crown has ended the day a slight 1.80 per cent in the green and shares trading for $10.19 each in a $6.778 billion market cap.
