Macau Casinos Start COVID Testing, Vaccination Measures

Macau has seen an increase in COVID-19 cases since the end of September. Casino operators have introduced vaccination proof and testing measures for employees.

All six Macau casino operators have introduced COVID-19 vaccination and weekly test for coronavirus. If unvaccinated employees fail to provide a negative test result, they will be fired. The rise in coronaviirus cases in Macao is due to tighter government restrictions.

Macau casinos will close if they are linked to any new outbreaks of coronavirus. The concessionaries are trying to increase the number of vaccinations for their employees. Macau has a zero COVID-19 policy. It can be revoked once 80% of the population has received their full vaccination doses. Only 59% have received inoculations for coronvirus in Macao.

Macau has a number of restrictions in place. Some restrictions will soon be eased. The local lockdown zones will be removed between October 15 and 18.
