Macao suspends casino operations ahead of Typhoon Mangkhut
Source : Government Information Bureau
Gaming operations at all Macao casinos were suspended with effect from 11pm today, in view of the likely impact of Typhoon Mangkhut.
The decision was approved by the Chief Executive and agreed by the city’s six gaming concessionaires and sub-concessionaries.
The suspension of gaming operations is for the safety of casino employees, visitors to the city, and residents.
The Civil Protection Operations Centre will – after reviewing community conditions once Typhoon Mangkhut has passed – make a recommendation as to when gaming operations might resume.
Meanwhile, casino venues are urged to provide necessary assistance to, and protect the rights of, employees and visitors that are already on their respective premises. Those responsibilities are stated in an emergency plan submitted to the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau several days before the latest typhoon alert.
