Crown Perth to reopen on Saturday

The easing of COVID-19 restrictions in Western Australia will allow Crown Perth to recommence operations from Saturday 27 June.

With effect from this weekend Crown will restart its casino and gaming floor food and beverage outlets under temporary restrictions agreed with the WA Government.

The restrictions include:

  • Capacity limits at each venue based on the 2sqm rule;
  • Physical distancing between patrons at electronic gaming machines and electronic table games;
  • Restricting the number of players at table games;
  • Enhanced hygiene protocols.

"Crown's priority is to the health and safety of our employees, customers and the community," says Crown Resorts (ASX: CWN) CEO Ken Barton.

"The physical distancing and hygiene measures have been developed in consultation with the Government, Commissioner of Police and Chief Health Officer to allow reopening in a safe manner.

"We look forward to welcoming back many of our employees and customers to Crown Perth."

The reopening of Crown Perth comes in conjunction with Western Australia entering Phase 4 of its COVID-19 restriction easing roadmap that will do away with seated service requirements and will deploy the 2sqm rule govern capacity numbers in venues.

Phase 4 will start from Saturday, 27 June (11:59pm, 26 June), allowing major sport and entertainment venues to operate at 50 per cent capacity, casino gaming floors to reopen and gyms to operate unstaffed but with regular cleaning.

WA reported two new cases of COVID-19 overnight, bringing the State's total to 607.

Both cases are related to overseas travel and are in hotel quarantine.

There are currently four active cases in WA following one additional recovery overnight.
