Health & Sanitization Program
We are taking cleanliness to a new level by implementing an aggressive new health and sanitization program to complement the already rigorous cleaning standards currently in place at Augustine Casino. We take pride in being your preferred casino, and are committed to providing exceptional service and experience for our guests and team members alike.
The following protocols and procedures are in place to safeguard the health of our guests and team members.
PLEASE NOTE: If you do not feel well, please protect yourself and others by staying home and seeking the guidance of a healthcare professional. We greatly appreciate your compliance, patience and cooperation at this time as these protocols and procedures are only possible and effective with your help.
Employee & Guest Health
A Public Safety officer will greet each guest at the main entrance to the casino. They will ensure that each guest is wearing a mask, take their temperature using a non-touch laser forehead thermometer and ask them to use the provided hand sanitizer. Appropriate signage will be prominently displayed outlining safety guidelines and current physical distancing practices in use throughout the casino. Should lines form at the doors, markers will be placed on the ground to indicate distances of six feet to allow for social distancing while in line.
Points of entry for guests will be limited to the main entrance to allow Public Safety Officers to conduct noninvasive temperature checks utilizing handheld laser forehead thermometers. Anyone displaying a temperature over 100.0°F will be screened for symptoms of COVID-19. Guests confirmed to have a temperature over 100.0°F and displaying additional COVID-19 symptoms will not be allowed entry to the property. If the guest is part of a group, the whole group will be turned away.
Guests will be advised to practice physical distancing by standing at least six feet away from other groups of people. Restaurant tables, slot machine chairs and other physical layouts will be arranged to promote appropriate distancing. Employees will be reminded not to touch their faces and to practice physical distancing by standing at least six feet away from guests and other employees whenever possible.
Smoking is temporarily not allowed inside the casino. Please enjoy your cigarettes and vape pens outside at the designated smoking areas.
