Star Entertainment Group has reopened its flagship property, The Star Sydney, and will do the same at its two Queensland casinos this Friday, as Australia continues to relax COVID-19 restrictions.
Having previously reopened to a limited number of invited loyalty club members on 1 June, The Star Sydney expanded its operations on Wednesday with a maximum of 5,000 patrons allowed onto the main gaming floor at any one time based on the NSW Government requirement of one person per four square meters of floor space. All gaming tables and EGMs are allowed to operate provided there is a minimum of 1.5 meters of space between guests.
The Star Sydney will also unveil its upgraded and expanded Sovereign Room on Friday, with the formal opening of the improved private gaming space scheduled for August.
In Queensland, both The Star Gold Coast and Treasury Brisbane will reopen from midday this Friday 3 July, with maximum capacity of 2,600 people and 2,300 people respectively.
Star Entertainment Group Managing Director and CEO Matt Bekier said, “The health and well-being of our customers and staff remain paramount as we move to this next stage of reopening our properties.
“The conservative approach in managing the reopening of The Star Sydney in June 2020 provides us with further confidence in our operating and safety procedures. This next stage enables us to welcome back an additional approximately 3,000 employees, as well as a large number of our members and guests to safe and entertaining environments.”
