Commercial Casinos to Reopen Using Appropriate Social Distancing Protocols

Governor Kim Reynolds has announced further loosening of restrictions for Iowa’s businesses and includes the 19 commercial casinos to allow them to provide more games to be available since reopening on June 1. On June 10, the governor indicated that the 50% capacity restriction was being removed, and would allow that masks can be worn by patrons and the dealers at table games as an acceptable barrier where social distancing is not achievable. Plus, she recommended reasonable and adequate spacing on slot machines. Every property will be following important protocols and procedures to protect the health and safety of their guests, employees and communities. The Iowa Gaming Association is pleased that Governor Reynolds continues to provide methodical guidance to allow businesses to reopen in appropriate phases, while adhering to appropriate social distancing and hygiene guidelines.   

The Association has worked for the past few weeks with the governor, her staff, health agencies, and the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission (IRGC) as our regulator to discuss comprehensive protocol and procedure guidelines. Casinos are welcoming the opportunity to bring back their furloughed staff, who are the backbone of delivering stellar customer service, as well as welcoming back patrons who enjoy the gaming experience.

These commercial casinos are premier entertainment destinations that are a viable part of Iowa’s economy --adding $1 billion annual impact value to the state’s entertainment and tourism sectors. We will continue to follow the advice and guidance from the U.S.Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Iowa Public Health Department, and Governor Reynolds. Thank you for your support of the casinos and cooperation to practice personal responsibility to stay Covid-free.
