The nationwide shutdown due to coronavirus fears has led casinos and cardrooms to come up with clever ideas and clear guidelines复古传奇sf in order to remain as safe as possible when they re-open.

For the Seminole Hard Rock in Tampa, the first in the state to re-open at 7pm May 21st, that meant devising a "Safe and Sound" program.

This involved temperature checks at the entrance, mandatory masks or face coverings, and the Plexiglas barriers to ‘divide players at table games, poker games and customer service areas.’

Jim Allen, CEO of Seminole Gaming and Chairman of Hard Rock International, stated: "Hard Rock and Seminole Gaming have made a tremendous commitment to sanitary protocols and a safety-first mentality for both guests and team members."

He added:"We are making sure our resorts are safe and sound so our guests and team members have peace of mind when they return."

Not everyone was convinced that re-opening was such a great idea, a few of the Twitter comments below…

Most other states have yet to allow casinos to re-open, considering them to be among the least safe environments. One small cardroom in California even had a visit from the Department of Justice when it opened without state approval.

Nevada is yet to allow casinos to re-open, with June being the earliest players will be able to resume poker.
