Casino employees in Macau will be prescribed to wear medical masks for another six months, the Resolution of the Health Bureau, published in Official Gazette.
This measure extends the action of the declaration of the state introduced on January 22 under efforts to prevent COVID-19, and initially acted in one month. The order was then extended until September 22, and now the new deadline is March 22, 2021. Although the entry restrictions between Macau and the mainland China were gradually weakened, and on September 23, the issuance of individual visas for residents of all mainland Chinese provinces was restored.
As the october period of the Golden Week holidays approaches Macau (October 1-8), it is expected that the number of tourists arriving in the city will grow, since the special administrative area of Macau has not reported on new cases of COVID-19 more than 80 days in a row.
Currently, anyone who wants to enter the local casino must provide a test certificate for nucleic acid, confirming the absence of COVID-19 infection, in addition to the existing requirements for checking the body temperature and presentation of the Green Health Code.
