Hard Rock Announces Reopening its Cincinnati Casino After Curfew Lifted

Yesterday, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine lifted the overnight curfew in the state, which led to the reopening of many restaurants, bars and casinos.

Thursday marks the 84th day since the curfew was implemented by the governor as a result of growing number of Covid-19 cases. Since the effort to slow down the virus was successful, Ohio businesses could resume normal hours of operation.

When the curfew was implemented on November 19, it initially called for people in Ohio to stay home and for non-essential businesses around the state to stay closed between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. every day. However, in late January, the governor softened the hours permitting the businesses to operate until 11 p.m.

Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati was one of the first to announce its new operating hours once the curfew was lifted. Casino representatives wrote on Twitter: “The Ohio curfew has been lifted and we’re ALL IN!”

The casino announced going back to working 24-hours by saying its “welcoming back (its) late-night friends.”

When it came to restaurant hours, the casino promised to update all its customers in the next days.

Hard Rock Casino continues to follow certain rules when it comes to virus protection. It promotes social distancing by placing multiple plexiglass dividers and hand sanitizer stations throughout the casino.

Expansion Project

Many businesses suffered huge losses due to the coronavirus pandemic but this is not the case with Hard Rock, which will soon be expanding even further its business.

After long waiting period, in the beginning of February Hard Rock was granted preliminary approval to open it newest location in Rockford, Illinois.

The $310 million Rockford project met some significant obstacles due to criminal allegations against one of the investors. Although the scheme was close to receiving a final approval, the Illinois Gaming Board announced that it will keep a close look at Hard Rock’s affairs.

On its end, the brand promised to remove any investor who is found unfit for the future important Hard Rock project.

Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati is not the only location that enjoys the opportunity to reopen. In January Grand Victoria Casino announced resuming work after two inactive months but under certain conditions.

The casino is now working with different hours between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m.. The inside dining is forbidden. Players can only consume bottled water at the ground of the casino. The use of masks is mandatory and casino representatives state that they will be disinfecting all gaming machines, restrooms and other frequently touched surfaces like doors, tables and others.
