Food and drink service will remain closed during the first phase of reopening.
Everyone who enters the building will have their temperature taken, the press release said. The casino will also install Plexiglas where transactions occur, station hand sanitizer around the building, install signs on prevention policies and require frequent hand washing of its staff.
