Following the earlier announcement of City of Dreams Manila of the temporary closure of all its casino operations effective March 15 in full compliance with PAGCOR's order to suspend all gaming operations, its three luxury hotels: Nuwa, Nobu and Hyatt Regency and all restaurants and guest facilities on property will also temporarily suspend operations effective March 18, in adherence with the Enhanced Community Quarantine guidelines in Metro Manila and Luzon.
"In these extraordinary times that call for extraordinary measures, we rally behind President Rodrigo Duterte in the actions he has implemented to curb the spread of the Coronavirus, and we fully support PAGCOR under the leadership of Chairman Andrea Domingo in its order to temporarily suspend gaming operations in the best interest of all," says City of Dreams Manila Chief Operating Officer Kevin Benning. "We are also one with our industry colleagues who in this time of need have prioritized the safety of our colleagues and guests over economic goals," he continues.
In implementing the Enhanced Community Quarantine, the management is extending beneficial schemes for affected colleagues to tide them over the period. The property remains vigilant while installing stringent protocols and precautionary measures for the protection and well-being of its colleagues and guests from COVID-19.
During the integrated resort's closure, guests are encouraged to check on the service advisory updates on its website, Facebook and social media channels. Stringent social distancing and application of sanitation and hygiene protocols continue to be implemented for the skeletal workforce involved in the maintenance of the property.
