Australia’s Aquis Entertainment Group will reopen Casino Canberra from 10am today (Monday), more than four months since first closing its doors on 23 March.
The company, controlled by Hong Kong businessman Tony Fung, revealed Friday that Casino Canberra will reopen its doors from midday as the Australian Capital Territory moves to further ease COVID-19 restrictions, although the property will operate on a restricted basis. Those restrictions will include patrons being served alcohol having to be seated, a maximum of 100 people per defined area, excluding staff, and a limit of one person per four square meters of usable space.
The majority of employees currently on stand down will also be recalled “to a capacity of between 50% and 100%” depending on their role and work availability.
“Allison (Gallaugher, CEO) and her team have worked hard during the shutdown in controlling the company through the hibernation period and preparing for reopening under restricted trading conditions,” Fung said.
“We look forward to seeing our employees and patrons returning to the casino in the coming weeks.”
