While the gambling establishments have been up and running for a year considering that the coronavirus shutdown, California’s wider reopening this week allowed them to relax their guidelines further.
Things are much various than last summer when gaming floorings were open, but numerous other facilities that epitomized the gambling establishment experience remained shuttered. Buffets, pool complexes, day spas, and entertainment venues were closed. Temperature scans and mandatory mask requirements were everywhere.
Especially in the last few months, the gambling establishments, motivated by a reduction in COVID-19 cases and that June 15 resuming date, have moved towards something resembling normalcy.
We recently saw a few Southern California casinos roll back their mask and temperature level check requirements.
In May, Pechanga Resort Gambling establishment opened its medical spa, hotel, and swimming pool to the general public after those parts of the complex were closed for more than a year.
Some casinos have currently restarted massive shows, while others have hinted at their return. Other home entertainment offerings such as esports are on their way back, too.
However, there are some things that COVID-19 has wholly altered. Buffets will not return at a few of the casinos, and those spaces will instead end up being something various.
And as we move deeper into the summer, we’ll see another thing that’s been a hallmark of Southern California’s gambling establishment scene before the coronavirus: An expansion. San Manuel Gambling’s establishment in Highland will complete the first phase of its $550 million growth that includes a vast video gaming floor, 24-hour restaurant, and several shops.
