The discovery of the P1 variant from Manaus, Brazil, has exacerbated the rise in COVID-19 infection rates.
As a result, the Uruguayan government has ordered the closure of all state casinos until April 12. And has asked private operators to do the same.
According to a new decree by the government: “the casinos owned by the Ministry of Economy and Finance will remain closed until April 12, 2021.”. This rule should apply to private casinos.”
According to the National Association of State Casino Officials (Anfuce): “not a single casino in the world has triggered a COVID-19 outbreak.” This is because we follow a strict sanitary procedure decided upon by the Ministry of Public Health (MSP) and the Office of Planning and Budget (OPP).”
