Caesars Entertainment has announced that everyone indoors at all properties across the Caesars network, including Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino, will be required to wear masks at all times, except when eating or drinking.

According to Tony Rodio, CEO of Caesars Entertainment, the company has continued to evaluate the recommendations and directives regarding COVID-19.  “We are immediately requiring everyone on our properties to wear masks, because the scientific evidence strongly suggests that wearing masks and practicing social distancing may be the most important deterrent to spreading COVID-19 from person-to-person.”

Although the City of Maricopa and Pinal County have not yet issued a mask mandate, Harrah’s Ak-Chin management agrees that this precautionary measure will further enhance the safety and well-being of the local customers.

“Masks are an important safety measure against the rise in positive cases throughout Arizona,” said Robert Livingston, general manager of Harrah’s Ak-Chin.  “This policy means our customers can come to Harrah’s knowing that we are doing what we can to mitigate the impact of the coronavirus.”

“We implemented stringent sanitization protocols when we re-opened in mid-May and as we continue to monitor the situation here in Pinal County and across Arizona, it is important that we continue to put the health and safety of our customers and our employees at the forefront.”

The policy is in effect immediately.
