According to Rivers spokesman Jack Horner, the employee tested positive has not been on the property in the last seven days. The last time the worker was available on sight was June 13. He added,

The first positive case in the casino was reported last Wednesday, just a week after the casino reopened for business after a nearly 90-day shutdown. The state authorities had issued a stay at home orders and shut down businesses in the state. Horner said that although the employee was not in the casino through the week, all employees and guests that came in close contact with the state member will get a notification from the Allegheny County Health Department. He added that the casino’s top priority is to safeguard the health of its visitors and employees.

Casino patrons will get temperatures checked

The casino is taking a number of measures to ensure the safety of its guests and staff. All people are checked for temperature on arrival. If they have a temperature of over 100.4 degrees, they will not be allowed on the premises. All employees have undergone routine temperature checks since the reopening. All employees with high temperatures were asked not to return to work until they are retested.

All guests and workers are required to wear face masks. Social distancing guidelines have also been issued. The casino will also encourage everyone to sanitize their hands frequently while they are at the casino. The company also underwent several protocols to prevent the spread of coronavirus. This includes adding additional cleaning times, social distancing rules, and face-covering requirements. It has also installed plexiglass dividers and removed alternative slot machines to ensure the proper distance between people.
