GrandWest’s doors will be opening soon, but the date is yet to be determined.

President Cyril Ramaphosa last week announced that additional economic sectors would now be allowed to reopen under advanced level 3 of the national lockdown. Of these sectors include accredited and licenced accommodation, casinos, cinemas, restaurants and personal care and beauty, including hair salons. Ramaphosa said the opening of these sectors would depend on “specific and stringent safety requirements”.

In an interview with Sun International’s chief operating officer of hospitality, Graham Wood, he explained that it will take the industry a long time to recover following the closure of its doors on 27 March this year, as a result of the nationwide lockdown.

“We have a long road ahead of us, but we are confident that we can regain some of that lost ground once leisure air travel resumes and interprovincial and international travel restrictions are lifted.”

Wood said in order to maintain crowd control at GrandWest and all other casinos under their umbrella, access to casino floors will be limited to MVG Loyalty Programme cardholders for the purposes of tracking and traceability of customers. “In addition, all visitors will be required to complete a medical questionnaire and have their temperatures taken.

“We had already reduced capacities in our casinos by switching off every second slot machine and reducing seats at our tables. We are also installing physical barriers between slot machines to support physical distancing and where physical barriers cannot be installed our staff will be wearing face shields. All guests will be required to wear masks. Our casinos will be equipped with sanitizer stations and cleaning in our casinos will be enhanced as per what we implemented prior to the implementation of the lockdown.”

He further explained that seating capacities in Sun International-owned restaurants will be reduced in line with government regulations.

“Guests will be required to wear masks and appropriate physical barriers and personal protective equipment will be implemented. The safety of our guests and employees remains of paramount importance.”

Sun International’s hotels, casinos and restaurants will reopen, but Wood said GrandWest’s CineCentre will issue their own announcement.

“We await the publication of the regulations supporting the earlier opening of casinos and other sectors of our industry as announced by the President,” Wood added.
