Face masks are nonetheless required at Indiana casinos

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Players must wear face masks in casinos at least until the end of May.

Updated health guidelines from the Gaming Commission said that the operators of the 13 state-licensed casinos have decided to maintain the mask rule to help contain the spread of COVID-19, despite Governor Eric Holcomb lifting the statewide mask mandate as of April 6.

Casino rules require customers to wear masks except when they are sitting, drinking, or smoking at a slot machine, bar, or restaurant table. Players must wear masks when playing table games and staff must wear masks at all times.

The Gaming Commission said casinos will consider whether the mask requirement should continue after June 1st.

State guidelines direct casinos to obtain permission from health authorities before holding large crowded events and to continue to provide additional distance between slot machine players.
