Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen said on Friday that casinos across the nation would be allowed to resume operations if they met health requirements to prevent Covid-19 outbreaks at their venues. The information was disclosed by government spokesperson Phay Siphan, in his Facebook account.
According to the spokesperson, the prime minister announced the decision during a weekly Cabinet meeting. He said the decision took into consideration the fact that the Covid-19 situation in the country had stabilised.
Casino operators in Cambodia will have to obtain permission from the country’s Ministry of Health before reopening their respective venues, said Mr Siphan. The companies will have to meet certain requirements in order to counter Covid-19, he added. His post did not specify the measures that would have to be in place before a casino was allowed to reopen.
