Resorts World Sentosa To Maintain Reduced Capacity Until August 18
News reports indicate that Resorts World Sentosa casino complex in Singapore will maintain a low guest capacity until August 18. This directive applies to its gaming operations and several other non-gaming attractions at the venue, like the SEA Aquarium and Universal Studios Singapore.
The open attractions will also retain their available times, between Fridays and Mondays. However, some others will remain closed, like the Adventure Cove Waterpark and Dolphin Island as well.
The new restrictions are based on the government’s decision to further tighten their Covid19 management measures. They have gone back to high alert “Phase 2,” whose implementation started Thursday and is set to last until August 18, after a rise in new cases.
Early in June, health authorities relaxed casino capacity limits in Singapore after a decreased number of Covid cases. They were, however, recently reduced back to 25% due to the rise of several “Covid clusters.”
The Resorts World Sentosa venue is operated by Genting Singapore Ltd. As of mid-July, the casino website mentioned that they had a limit of two players per gaming table.
In the latest statements, Resorts World Sentosa’s management added that they had placed safety management protocols on the property to prevent and control the spread of Covid-19.
The other casino complex in Singapore, Marina Bay Sands, earlier in the week announced it was temporarily closing from July 22 for deep cleaning after multiple infections emerged from among staff and other visitors to the venue.
After the ministry announced the emergence of a new cluster at the venue, they stated that it would be closed to the public until August 5. The Marina Bay Sands casino is operated by Sands China Ltd, a subsidiary of the parent Las Vegas Sands Corp.
