Due to recent events concerning the coronavirus outbreak and health concerns globally, we have implemented an educational “Aware and Active” Program for all Dover Downs team members and the general public. The plan reinforces the importance of personal hygiene, remaining at home when feeling ill, and employing safe travel practices.
Specific steps we have taken internally include;
- Adding more hand sanitizer dispensers to those that had already been installed throughout the property
- Creating a designated “clean team” with specific protocol for the slot machines, common dining areas, key touch points (railings, elevators buttons, etc.) and entrances
- Ensuring that sanitizing products, such as hand gels and wipes, are available for our guests and team members
- Providing vinyl gloves for team members
- Approaching guests and team members who are demonstrating any respiratory illness or symptoms to seek medical assistance
- Ensuring that proper cleaning products are utilized
- Purchasing additional equipment for cleaning the facility
- Monitoring all announcements from the DE Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control as well as all casino/hospitality industry postings
Please take your own measures to stay safe and prevent the spread of germs to others.
