Parx Casino Announces Reopening Plans for June 29
Parx Casino just announced plans to reopen the casino next week, but things will significantly different when you arrive.
The Bensalem based casino says they’ll reopen to the public on Monday (June 29), and they’ll be following strict guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. These plans include strict cleaning measures, health screenings, and updated hours for the casino.
Here’s what they’ve unveiled about the process:
HOURS OF OPERATION & CLEANING MEASURES:
Monday through Friday, the casino will be open from 9 am until 3 am.
* Between the hours of 3 am to 9 am Monday through Friday they will be closed for nightly deep cleaning.
Weekends (from Friday at 9 am through Monday at 3 am) will operate on a 24-hour basis.
*Deep cleaning will be ongoing during the operational hours.
CASINO ENTRANCE PROCESS:
Entry will be limited to certain doors, and if the casino has reached capacity, guests will be asked to establish a queue outside (while maintaining social distancing).
When entering the casino, guests will be greeted by a security officer who will provide hand sanitizer to and screen all visitors.
The process will include a questionnaire and a temperature check (using a contactless thermal camera or infrared thermometer). Guests with a temperature at or above 100.4* (between two screenings) will NOT be allowed to enter the casino.
Masks will be required by all guests at all times while on the property. Guests who refuse to wear a mask will be denied entry.
Social distancing will be followed inside the casino. Slot machines, table games, restaurant tables and more have been arranged to promote social distancing.
The poker room is closed until further notice, per government guidance, Parx Casino says.

As we first reported on Friday, Bucks County (and all of Southeastern Pennsylvania) will enter the green phase of the state's reopening plan on Friday (June 26). Philadelphia's opening will be a bit slower.
