American betting firm Boyd Gaming has announced that they're re-opening three casinos throughout the Midwest, which will bring 24 out of 29 states into operation for the company.
The Blue Chip Casino Hotel and Spa in Michigan City, Indiana, Belterra Casino Resort in Florence, Indiana, and Belterra Park in Cincinnati, Ohio will be re-opening their doors next week after having shut down to stop the spread of Covid-19. The country and various states are beginning to re-open their doors though, and the company's casino brands are working in new measures to safely operate their casinos.
There will be strict sanitation, social distancing, and mask requirements put into place, and players will be subject to having temperatures taken before they enter the properties. It's expected that Indiana casinos will open June 15th, while the Ohio casino will re-open June 19th.
Commenting on the situation Boyd CEO Keith Smith said, "We are encouraged by early guest volumes at our newly reopened properties across the country and are optimistic we will see similar results as we return to business at Blue Chip, Belterra Resort and Belterra Park."
