Operations for casinos in Macau have resumed exactly at 12 midnight on February 20.

The Government Information Bureau of Macau made this announcement with the publication of Executive Order 39/2020 in the Macao SAR Gazette.

Lei Wai Nong, the Secretary for Economy and Finance, said in a press conference that the new order lifted a requirement in the previous order that suspended the operations due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The decision to reopen the casinos was made after an “extensive evaluation of the risk to the community” regarding COVID-19.

Prior to the resumption, preparatory works were discussed, including the need for thorough checks at all casino premises; the imposition of body-temperature checks at casino entrances; a requirement that all employees and patrons each wear a face mask; and an adjustment in the distance between gaming tables.

Should the government consider that casino operators are not yet ready for the resumption of operations, they are advised to apply for an extension of the current suspension, which can last up to a maximum of 30 days.

In an interview with an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) named Mike through ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol Central Visayas, he said that he is glad of this resumption since they could now go back to work.

Mike said there are a lot of OFWs working in casinos that were affected by the suspension of operations.
