Seminole Gaming upgrades ‘Safe + Sound’ guidelines

Seminole Gaming has announced an upgrade to its ‘Safe + Sound’ program guidelines, which have been in place since five of its six casinos reopened over the past two months.

The upgrade, which is effective immediately, requires all guests to be stationary when lowering their masks or face coverings for eating, drinking or smoking. Also, guests are now prohibited from walking in all public spaces without protective face coverings.

“Seminole Gaming is committed to the health and safety of its guests and team members, and we are upgrading our comprehensive “Safe + Sound” program to further limit the threat from COVID-19,” said Jim Allen, Seminole Gaming CEO and chairman of Hard Rock International

“We are making sure our resorts and casinos are safe and sound so our guests and team members have peace of mind when they return.”

Furthermore, Seminole Gaming confirmed the immediate closure of PLA, an interactive gold and games restaurant tenant, due to failure to adhere to the ‘Safe + Sound’ guidelines.

In addition to the program enhancement, Seminole Gaming will expand the teams which deal with the enforcement of safety guidelines at its casinos and will outfit them in distinctive uniforms to create greater guest awareness of this important issue. Guests will be informed of the program upgrade and required to adhere to it, or they will be asked to leave the property.

The ‘Safe + Sound’ guidelines will also include: temperature checks for all guests and team members prior to entry, alternating slot machines will be turned off to help ensure social distancing, Plexiglass barriers, hand-sanitising stations and 50 per cent reduction in guest capacity.

The program upgrade will apply to all guests at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, The Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, The Seminole Classic Casino in Hollywood, and the Seminole Brighton Casino, on the Brighton Seminole Reservation northwest of Lake Okeechobee.
