Valley Forge Casino has closed to the public for 14 days until March 27, in compliance with Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s directive.
“The safety and well-being of our team members and customers is our utmost priority,” the operator said in a news release. “Starting in February, Boyd Gaming has been following stringent CDC-recommended protocols at its properties nationwide, including frequent handwashing by team members, increased placement of hand sanitizers and increased sanitation of frequently-touched surfaces. The Company has been advising all team members who are experiencing flu-like symptoms to go home immediately and contact their health care professional.”
“No mass gatherings should be held, including conferences and rallies. By closing these facilities, we can control the spread of this disease, that’s the hope. And we can redirect our public safety and health officials to where they are needed the most,” Wolf said in a press conference, CBS reports.
