Seminole Gaming Carries Out ‘Safe + Sound’ Update

Seminole Gaming has carried out a further update to its ‘Safe + Sound’ health and safety system, with the addition of hundreds of system compliance experts at both Seminole Hard Rock and Seminole Casinos in Florida.

The new team members will be recruited across five Seminole Gaming locations to focus on managing guest compliance with all program elements including proper use of the appropriate masks or face covers, social distance, crowd control and stationary stationary when eating or drinking.

System compliance specialists may wear distinctive uniforms to raise awareness of this important issue among visitors, making it mandatory for all visitors to comply with the specifications of the system or for individuals to leave the house.

The software update is for Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Hollywood, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa, Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, Seminole Classic Casino in Hollywood, and Seminole Brighton Casino.  Seminole Casino Hotel Immokalee remains closed, with no reopening date confirmed yet.

Jim Allen, Seminole Gaming CEO and Chairman of Hard Rock International explained: “The addition of more Safe + Sound program enforcement specialists is a further enhancement of our industry-leading commitment to ensure the health and safety of our guests and team members.”

“Our comprehensive approach to dealing with COVID-19 is meant to ensure public safety and give our guests peace of mind when they return.”

With the reopening of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa in May, Seminole Gaming launched its “Safe + Sound” plan, with a subsequent expansion expanding it to four more casinos in June.

The guidelines for system Safe + Sound include:

  • Temperature checks for all guests and team members prior to entry. Any guest or team member with a temperature above CDC guidelines of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit will not be allowed entry.
  • A requirement that all guests wear masks or cloth face coverings that meet CDC guidelines, without exception. Masks will be provided to guests as needed.
  • Thousands of slot machines are turned off to help ensure social distancing on the casino floors.
  • New Plexiglas barriers divide players at table games and customer service areas.
  • Signs are posted throughout the casino complexes to encourage social distancing and help ensure adherence to program guidelines.
  • A new “Safe + Sound Clean Team” focuses on cleaning and disinfecting surfaces throughout the casino complexes, with special emphasis on high-touch surfaces and common areas.
  • Hand-sanitising stations are available on the casino floors, at the entrances and throughout the casino complexes.
  • An overall 50 per cent reduction in guest capacity throughout the casino complexes.
