While many people in the gambling world are eager to return to pre-COVID gaming experiences, the world’s largest casino market is announcing that, at least there, it won’t come before spring.
The new measure from the Macau Health Bureau mandates that casino workers wear masks or face covers while working for another six months. The order extended the current order to 14 months and is likely to be lifted on March 23.
The original mandate was signed at the end of January and is set to remain in effect for eight months, according to Inside Asian Gaming visit pisauqq.
Macau casinos have been hit hard by the coronavirus and restrictions imposed by its government to combat it. Following the region’s 15-day casino closure in February, gross gaming revenue has fallen.
August was the fifth month in a row with a more than 90 percent drop in gross gaming revenue and the 11th month in a row with year-over-year declines.
The Chinese government has also imposed travel restrictions, both from mainland and international, to Macau, further hurting business. Many of these restrictions are slowly being eased and markets are likely to start reversing in the coming months.
