Encore Boston Harbor to reopen on 12 July

2 July 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Encore Boston Harbor announced today that, pending approval of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, it plans to re-open its casino resort on Sunday, 12 July 2020, at 9 a.m., as part of the State's Phase 3 Re-opening Plan.

In addition to implementing the extensive measures of its Health and Safety Plan, Encore Boston Harbor supports and will adhere to the directives aimed at reducing the risk to public health set forth by the MGC. Every effort has been made to preserve Encore's luxury experience and provide guests with the peace of mind needed to enjoy a fun and relaxing return.
Several thoughtful new measures in social distancing, touchless technologies and cleaning protocols have been incorporated though the resort in a clear and transparent effort to protect the wellbeing of guests. Most notable among the enhancements are:
  • Non-invasive thermal temperature scans at all guest and employee entrances (no guest or employee with a temperature of 100.4 or more will be allowed in the resort);
  • Mandatory face coverings for all employees and guests, with complimentary face coverings available for guests;
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of guest areas throughout the day;
  • Multiple hand sanitizer stations and disinfecting wipes available throughout the resort; and
  • Appropriate and comfortable physical distancing in all gaming and dining areas.
Encore Boston Harbor's Health and Safety Plan was created in consultation with leading public health professionals in addition to MGC requirements and recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
