Marina Bay Sands has resumed the operation of the casino after a two-week closure.
The casino reopened at around 18: 00 on Thursday evening after being closed since July 22 to undergo a deep clean-up due to COVID-19, part of the latest outbreak in Singapore, which was linked to the hotel.
In a statement posted on its website, MBS said that the opening of the new home “comes at a time when the vaccination rate among our employees has reached almost 90%.”
MBS also outlined the “further improvement of our routine testing program for staff”, which is currently being rolled out, with the frequency of testing for COVID-19 differentiated depending on the vaccination status of individual team members and their risk profiles at work.
“This means that the staff working with guests will take swabs at intervals of three to 28 days,” the company added. The integrated resort, which has hygiene and sanitation certificates … strives to be vigilant on all fronts, working closely with the authorities to respond quickly and adapt to the changing situation.”
The closure was the second time in two months that MBS has suspended casino operations for cleaning, with two dealers also testing positive for COVID-19 in May. At that time, the company responded by testing 7,450 employees and 800 contractors, and all of them gave negative results.
On Thursday, Singapore reported 96 new cases of transmission.
