Argentina’s Santa Fe Casino Gets Green Light

The government in Santa Fe Province of Argentina provided the green light to the casino sector of the province to start operating after signing a decree approving the opening and approval of the sector protocols.

Marcos Drozdowicz, Casino Manager at Santa Fe Casino said: “We are working together with the Santa Fe Province Lottery in the development of protocols, to ensure everything relating to the safety of both customers and our employees, when they can resume activities. We are making it a priority to ensure a safe experience.”

Entrances should house temperature sensors and sanitation stations for hand and shoes, as well as mandatory mask use. In the gaming floor there will be social space, disinfecting the touch points as well as games and toilets.

Mr Drozdowicz further added: “The capacity with which we are going to be able to work has not yet been defined. We are prepared for all the regulations defined by the lottery, which will present the protocols to the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Labour. They will be in charge of approving them to create the safest possible environment. We don’t have a defined opening date yet.”

The region’s Labour minister Roberto Sukerman, warned: “Neither the casinos, nor the bingo, nor the shopping malls will open as before. We are not going to find a full shopping mall on Father’s Day.

“We are going little by little, testing and seeing how it works. As long as we keep the curve (of coronavirus infections) flattened, we are going to be able to keep moving forward.”
