29 May 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- While Pearl River Resort and Bok Homa Casino (Sandersville) remain temporarily closed, major steps are being taken in preparation for reopening. Plans include strict sanitation and safety protocols, required facemasks for associates, installation of plexi glass barriers, additional hand sanitizer stations added throughout the property, many slot machines turned off and chairs removed to ensure social distancing, table games to allow limited number of players, maximum of four guests per elevator and restaurants will have distanced seating and limited occupancy.

The Resort has also taken additional measures to protect guests and associates by investing in top of the line technology.
  • Trane UV Light Air Cleaning System – UV lighting technology system will be installed to filter and clean the air as it circulates throughout the casinos.
  • Hold Safe Handrail UV Disinfection Units –Advanced UV technology will be utilized on the handrails of the escalators and sky-bridge walkways to continuously disinfect as they rotate.
  • Chip Cleaning Machines – Chip cleaning machines will be used to clean and disinfect gaming chips at all table games.
  • Electrostatic Spray Technology – During designated times, sections of the gaming floor will be closed to allow for cleaning. The electrostatic spraying technology uses an electrical charge to dispense the appropriate sanitizers and disinfectants in a spray mist to wrap around and evenly coat surfaces for a more complete clean.
  • Thermal Temperature Scanners – Thermal cameras will be installed to conduct noninvasive temperature scans at all guest and associate entrances. Guests or associates displaying a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher, will not be allowed entry.
“Our top priority remains the health and safety of our guests, associates and Tribal members,” said Sonny Johnson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pearl River Resort. “While we have not yet determined a reopening date, we are confident that when we do reopen, it will be under the safest conditions possible. We look forward to welcoming guests and associates back soon.”
