Play It Safe™ | Commitment to Care

Delaware North’s Play It Safe | Commitment to Care is a comprehensive program to help keep guests and employees safe and slow the spread of infectious diseases like COVID-19.

We’ve reengineered our operating procedures to minimize contact risk and bolstered hygiene protocols to meet or exceed best-practice guidelines set forth by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Each of our facilities undergoes rigorous ongoing deep-cleaning and disinfection.

Key elements of the Play It Safe program include:

  • Guests are asked to adhere to social distancing protocols while waiting to enter.
  • All incoming guests will be added to a guest registry and their identity will be stored as a record of their visit.
  • All guests will be required to wear a mask or other face covering during their visit.
  • Temperature screening of guests takes place upon entering the facility.
  • An on-site Clean Team has been created, and its members are equipped with Ecolab® multi-surface cleaner and disinfectant to conduct ongoing sanitization of all surfaces. They will help to protect guests by dispensing hand sanitizer and spot cleaning at the tables and other surfaces on request.
  • Dealers will have hand sanitizer spray bottles at each table, and tables will be sanitized after a game breaks. Patrons will be required to sanitize their hands when joining a table. Chairs will be sanitized after a guest departs a game.
  • Playing cards and poker chips will be rotated on a schedule as recommended by experts in infectious disease control.
  • Social distancing protocols are in place throughout the facility.
  • Hand-sanitizing stations have been added at the entrance and throughout the facility.
  • Some service offerings may be limited or unavailable to help maintain safe social distancing and health and safety guidelines.
  • As always, no smoking will be permitted within the facilities, and designated smoking areas are maintained outside of the buildings.

Standards for our employees:

  • Take a health check, including a temperature screen, when they report to work.
  • Sanitize their hands when they report to work and are required to wash and sanitize their hands frequently throughout the shift.
  • Wear masks while they are on duty.
  • Undergo a comprehensive Play It Safe Training Program.

New entry screening procedures:

Please note: all patrons must have a mask or similar face covering to enter the facility. This is for the protection of you and all guests and employees.

Our facility is operating under strict occupancy guidelines and patrons will be permitted to enter as occupancy limits permit.

We require that patrons maintain safe social distancing outside the facility while waiting to gain entry as well as inside the facility.

All patrons will be screened and have their ID registered upon entry to the facility. Guests are instructed that they should not approach the facility it they have any symptoms or risk factors for COVID-19.
