Casinos in Goa, India, will be allowed to reopen today, allowing those who are fully vaccinated or provide a negative Covid-19 test to enter, chief minister Pramod Sawant said yesterday.
Along with casinos, the government expert committee has allowed spas and massage parlours to reopen as well, though major events such as music festivals have not yet been permitted to reopen.
“The state government’s expert committee compared the Covid-19 positivity rate over the last two to three weeks and it has been under two per cent, said Sawant, as reported by the Indian Express.
“In order to revive economic activity and tourism activity, casinos have been allowed to reopen on Monday with strict standard operating procedures.”
There are six offshore casinos in Goa, as well as a number of casinos located in five-star hotels in the state.
