Coronavirus: govt issues guidelines for betting shops due to reopen on Saturday

Betting shops, which are due to reopen on Saturday must only serve customers on a ‘take away’ system, as people cannot sit inside the shops to play games such as Kino, the health ministry said on Wednesday.

According to the latest government announcement betting shops can open on May 23.

In the instructions on protection measures that need to be taken in Opap betting shops, the ministry said that all customers need to disinfect their hands before entering the premises and on their way out.

Disinfectants must be available at the entrance of the shops.

The businesses need to observe the one-person-per-8-square-metres rule, while there will be no chairs inside the shops.

“The submission and/or the validation of the lottery tickets will be done only with the ‘take away’ procedure,” the health ministry said.

Customers will be given the lottery tickets by the employees as they will no longer be available at the counter tops or tables within the shops.
