Sihanoukville’s Jin Bei Casino allowed to reopen as Cambodian COVID outbreak spreads

The governor of Preah Sihanouk, Kuoch Chamroeun, has granted permission for three hotspots in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, including Jin Bei Casino and Hotel, to resume normal operations.

All three branches of Jin bei Hotel as well as Jin Bei Casino and Hotel were closed down in late February after two positive cases of COVID-19 among Chinese guests were detected.

Inside Asian Gaming reported at the time that Jin Bei Casino and Hotel had been surrounded by police and locked down, with staff and players essentially trapped inside. A total of 32 locations across the city were subsequently designated as hotspots and another 19 as quarantine facilities, however Chamroeun lifted some of those on Sunday, with Jin Bei among them, according to a report by The Khmer Times.
