Cambodia’s casinos have been cleared to reopen provided they observe strict health requirements aimed at minimizing further COVID-19 transmission.
On Friday, Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen declared that casinos would be allowed to reopen provided they obtain the approval of Ministry of Health officials. A government spokesman announced the PM’s decision in a Facebook post following the government’s weekly cabinet meeting.
Cambodia’s casinos, including NagaCorp’s NagaWorld facility in Phnom Penh and the smaller gaming venues in border areas such as Bavet and Poipet as well as the once-thriving Sihanoukville region, were all ordered closed on April 1 as the government attempted to flatten its COVID-19 curve.
