Statement by matt schuffert, vice president & general manager, on the reopening of Ameristar Casino Hotel East chicago

While the amenities our customers have come to know and love may be somewhat limited for the time being, the ability to safely welcome back our team members and guests remains our top priority. With this in mind, we have been working closely with the Indiana Gaming Commission, state and local leaders, and public health officials to finalize comprehensive Phase I reopening protocols and new health and safety precautions. Our returning team members will be trained on these procedures and our guests will see reminder signage about them throughout the property. These new protocols include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • We will have limited capacity on our gaming floor.
  • The installation of floor decals and signage to strictly enforce social distancing guidelines in areas where lines typically form.

Health & Safety

  • Team members and vendors will be required to wear masks and will undergo a health screening each day, including temperature checks, prior to their shift.
