Indiana casinos have a few new rules to follow after Gov. Eric Holcomb’s latest COVID-19 executive order.
The regulations, imposed by the Indiana Gaming Commission, apply to casinos in counties labeled orange or red on the state’s color-coded map that measures the risk of COVID-19 spread.
Casinos in orange counties have to create a designated area – away from the gaming floor and any walking paths – where people can eat, drink and smoke, while socially distanced. Otherwise, eating and drinking are prohibited anywhere else in the casino (other than a restaurant) and mask-wearing is required at all times.
If a casino is in a red-colored county, it must also reduce its already limited capacity by 15 percent.
