Star Entertainment follows Crown Resorts' lead on Covid-19 containment

Star Entertainment Group (ASX: SGR) is kicking off a series of measures for patrons at its casinos to keep their distance, taking a leaf out of Crown Resorts' (ASX: CWN) playbook.

This afternoon the company announced the following social distancing measures, much in line with those already announced by Crown Resorts (ASX: CWN) this morning:

  • Deactivation of every second gaming machine and electronic table game to create additional distance;
  • Reducing the capacity at table games, including increasing distancing at seated table games between players and restricting the total number of players at each stand up table game; and
  • Restricting the number of patrons in individual food and beverage, banqueting and conferencing, and theatre facilities to under 500 persons with limited density for each outlet.

"The safety and wellbeing of our guests and team members remains of highest importance to The Star," the company said.
