Two Rhode Island casinos to enter next phase of reopening
29 June 2020
(PRESS RELEASE) — Rhode Island’s two casinos tomorrow will enter the next phase of reopening since the global COVID-19 pandemic temporarily shuttered the two venues by opening fully to the public at a capped capacity, expanding hours from 10:00 am – 3:00 am and offering table games on a socially distanced basis.
According to Marc Crisafulli, Executive Vice President of TRWH and President of both Twin River Casino Hotel in Lincoln and the Tiverton Casino Hotel, highlights of the next reopening phase include the following:
- Table games will open on Tuesday, 30 June. There will be a maximum of three players per table and all players and the dealer must wear masks. Plexiglass will divide players, and also separate the dealer from the players. Beverage service will be available from the tables. Roulette, poker and craps will not immediately be offered.
- Hours of operation will be extended to 10:00 am – 3:00 am daily.
- Guests may visit either property without invitation. Attendance at any given time at Twin River Casino Hotel in Lincoln is 3,400 and the limit in Tiverton is approximately 900.
“Our pre-opening has gone exceptionally well and provided valuable and necessary training for our staff as we welcomed back guests on a very limited basis,” said Mr. Crisafulli. “We now feel comfortable broadening our offerings and expanding the number of guests in our two Rhode Island casinos, all the while adhering to the strict social distancing and health and safety protocols we have put in place for guests and team members alike.”
A summary of health and safety measures in place include the following:
Face masks are required for admittance to the casino. Masks will be provided if a guest is unable to bring one.
Photo Identification for contact tracing purposes is required for admittance to the casino.
Only self-parking is available – no valet service at this time.
Non-invasive thermal temperature checks will be given to all guests and team members. Anyone with a temperature above 100.4 degrees will not be allowed entry.
Hand sanitizers and sanitizing wipes have been placed throughout all areas of the casino.
Guests must maintain social distancing by staying six to ten feet away from guests outside of their party.
