Philippines casino in Manila area have been closed for over two months now, and it’s unclear when they might be allowed to reopen.
As the country slowly starts to ease quarantine rules, government officials can’t seem to find common ground on just how safe it is for the population to leave their homes. That kind of confusion has City of Dreams (CoD) Manila and Okada Manila striking two very different tones in their recent announcements.
The Metro Manila area has been in an Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) since mid-March, with all non-essential work and travel prohibited.
As the number of new infections has stayed roughly flat but consistent at 200 new cases per day, President Duterte hasn’t seen it fit to end the ECQ, instead opting to modify it to allow some businesses to resume. That meant a flood of people returning to work, and on the weekend, to the shopping malls.
With no indication whatsoever of when Philippines casino would be allowed to re-open, CoD and Okada are taking two very different paths.
In a May 12 press release, CoD announced they would be extending a month’s pay to all of their non-management staff.
That extension should get employees to the next milestone when Duterte is likely to announce how much longer the modified ECQ will last. Currently, it’s expected to run at least until the beginning of June. Each operator has only extended their pandemic policies as far as they’ve needed to so far, but perhaps CoD is hoping they can get back to business by June?
Meanwhile, Okada is now teasing that they could be close to reopening soon, and are setting up procedures to keep staff safe on their return.
