Foxwoods Resort Casino enhances health and safety measure

13 March 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Foxwoods Resort Casino, the Northeast's premier resort destination, continues to implement additional methods for all of its guests and team members to remain the healthy and safe environment it has been known for over 28 years.

"We take the health and safety of our guests and team members seriously. We have taken proactive, prevention steps in face of the COVID-19 threat," stated Dr. Setu Vora, Chief Medical Officer, Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation. "This will remain a critical priority for us. In partnership with the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation's health teams and governmental partners, we are closely monitoring the latest updates and following guidance from the CDC, state officials and national experts. We are in communication with our teams on everyday preventative actions they can take. We also provide free, on-site flu-shots for all of our team members and dependents every year. We've invested in additional resources to expand our cleaning efforts across the property and also offer sanitizer stations throughout the resort to promote hand cleansing for our guests and team members. Health, wellness, and wonderful experience for everyone at MPTN remains a top objective for us."

In addition to following the guidelines from the CDC, Foxwoods has taken substantial preventative measures including:
  • The addition of over 330 hand sanitizing stations and sanitizing wipes located throughout the complex
  • The creation of a core cleaning team dedicated to increasing the frequency of disinfecting slot machines, door handles, table games, escalator rails, table tops, chairs and other high-volume touch points
  • Daily reminders to team members through multiple channels about washing hands often, reinforcing the message, posting signage in key team member areas, and providing additional hand sanitizer dispensers as well
  • Encouraging team members to stay home if they feel unwell
  • Providing free, on-site flu shots for all our team members annually
Foxwoods Resort Casino is encouraging guests who are ill to seek medical attention and to avoid public exposure as much as possible. There are established protocols to help guests get the medical attention they may need as well as sanitation guidelines should a guest become ill on property.

Foxwoods Resort Casino remains open for business with no current cancellations of player events or entertainment and will continue to respond with safety as our top priority.

Foxwoods Resort Casino is committed to implementing recommendations from the health authorities to give guests peace of mind as they visit the property now and in the future.
