Australia's SkyCity Adeliade casino will be making proof of a Covid-19 vaccination a requirement to enter its property beginning next month.

Beginning February 10th all visitors and employees at the site will be required to show proof of vaccination or medical exemption in order to gain access to the site. The requirements will apply to the casino floor, bars, restaurants, and hotel. Visitors will have to show their vaccination status with a printed certificate and ID or a digital certificate on their smartphone.

The casino has been operating under the South Australian Covid Management Plan, and is including a number of social distancing requirements and keeping the occupancy at one person per four square meters on the property.

Regarding the requirement SkyCity Australia COO David Christian said, "As one of Adelaide's largest single site entertainment venues and as a significant employer, we need to take measures to help keep everyone safe."

"While we have existing robust health and safety measures in place to limit the risk of exposure to Covid-19, public health information and research confirms that Covid-19 vaccines provide the best protection for our employees and customers."

"SkyCity has been significantly impacted by the outbreak, and we have been encouraging our people to get vaccinated at the earliest opportunity. We would like to thank our highly valued employees and customers for their understanding."

I've said this before and still think that this will become an obligation in most countries. Even in Malta, to access cinemas, bars, restaurants, casinos etc. you'll have to have a vaccine certificate.
