Seminole Gaming Updates ‘Safe + Sound’ System Standards

Seminole Gaming has completed an update to its ‘Safe + Sound’ system standards, which have been in effect for the past two months since five of its six casinos reopened.

The update, which is effective immediately, demands that all visitors be stationary to eat, drink or smoke while lowering their masks or face coverings. Guests are also now prohibited to walk in all public spaces without clear face coverings.

Jim Allen, Seminole Gaming CEO and chairman of Hard Rock International: “Seminole Gaming is committed to the health and safety of its guests and team members, and we are upgrading our comprehensive “Safe + Sound” program to further limit the threat from COVID-19.

“We are making sure our resorts and casinos are safe and sound so our guests and team members have peace of mind when they return.”

Seminole Gaming also announced the immediate closure of PLA, an immersive gold and games restaurant tenant due to non-compliance with the ‘Safe + Sound’ Guidelines.

In addition to system expansion, Seminole Gaming will broaden the teams dealing with implementation of safety standards at its casinos and equipping them with distinctive uniforms to increase awareness of this critical issue among guests. Guests will be notified of the change, and will be expected to stick to it, or they will be asked to leave.

The requirements for ‘Safe + Sound’ will also include: pre-entry temperature tests for both guests and team members, rotating slot machines will be switched off to help maintain social space, Plexiglass walls, hand sanitation stations and a 50 % reduction in guest capacity.

The programme update will extend to all guests at the Hollywood Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, the Tampa Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, the Coconut Creek Seminole Casino, the Hollywood Seminole Classic Casino, and the Brighton Seminole Casino, on the Brighton Seminole Reservation northwest of Lake Okeechobee.
