Encore Boston Harbor prepares for July reopening

29 June 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Following the direction of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, Encore Boston Harbor will re-open to the public as part of the State's Phase 3 Reopening Plan, anticipated to begin no sooner than 6 July. The resort voluntarily closed on 15 March 2020, to reduce the threat to public health arising from community spread of the COVID-19 virus.

In addition to its previously released Health and Safety Program, Encore Boston Harbor supports and will adhere to the additional directives aimed to reduce the risk to public health set forth by the MGC, including reductions in available gaming capacity. As a result, the resort will re-open with amenities appropriate to the new rules and in support of the anticipated number of guests.

Pending final approval, Encore Boston Harbor plans to re-open the casino gaming area and supporting food and beverage outlets around the casino. It also plans to open the hotel on a limited basis. When it re-opens, Encore Boston Harbor will bring back its employees in a thoughtful and measured protocol. Some employees working in the re-opened amenities and restaurants will return to work. Employees, who worked in areas for which a re-opening date is uncertain due to current restrictions, are being placed on furlough until further notice.
