(Reuters) – Caesars Entertainment Corp said on Wednesday it would require all guests at its casinos and other properties across the United States to wear face masks to help counter the spread of the new coronavirus.
Caesar’s said (here) anyone who refuses to wear a mask will be asked to leave the property.
The company had previously mandated guests at its Las Vegas casinos wear masks only at table games that did not have barriers, in accordance with rules set by the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
Earlier this month, AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc said guests should wear face masks at all of its U.S. movie theaters when they reopen in July, following criticism from people who said they would not feel safe if others around them were not wearing masks.
