After the announcement of a nationwide lockdown in New Zealand, SkyCity Casino was quick to react. The casino group released a statement saying that they would be taking “all necessary measures” to ensure the safety of their employees and customers. SkyCity also announced that they would be closing all of their properties in Auckland and Christchurch.
The New Zealand Herald reported that SkyCity was the first business to take a hard-line stance against the threat of anyone who might be carrying weapons in their casino. SkyCity said that anyone found with a weapon in their casino would be ejected and security would confiscate the weapon. SkyCity also said that they would be implementing extra security measures for their customers and employees.
The threat of a terrorist attack in New Zealand has never been more real. After the attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, dozens of people were killed and dozens more were injured. The country’s prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, said that Friday’s attack was carried out by “one individual … a violent extremist, right-wing extremist. “New Zealand is now under a nationwide lockdown, which means that no one is allowed to leave their homes.
On March 23, 2020, New Zealand announced a nationwide lockdown in response to the global pandemic of COVID-19.
When the announcement was made, SkyCity Casino in Auckland immediately implemented its pandemic response plan. The plan had been developed and updated regularly since the SARS outbreak in 2003, so the casino was well-prepared for a lockdown. All non-essential staff were sent home, and game areas were closed off. Only essential services like food outlets remained open. The casino also put measures in place to ensure that social distancing could be maintained, such as limiting the number of people on each floor and increasing cleaning schedules.
The casino also implemented its pandemic response plan for the staff. The employees were tested for COVID-19 at the beginning of their shifts, and again at the end. Additionally, they were required to take their temperature twice daily, wear surgical masks and gowns, and sanitize everything they touched with anti-viral solvents.
The lockdown was only in effect for a week. On March 30, New Zealand rescinded the lockdown and announced that the country was under control. It was specifically stated that Casino SkyCity had been a great help in containing the outbreak of COVID-19.
In response to this, the public relations department of Casino SkyCity released a statement giving their thanks to the New Zealand government for its support of the casino during the crisis.
In reaction to this announcement, SkyCity Casino released a statement saying that they would be taking “all necessary measures” to ensure the safety of their employees and customers.
As New Zealand’s largest casino, SkyCity Casino was one of the first businesses to be affected by the government’s announcement of a nationwide lockdown. In reaction to this announcement, SkyCity released a statement saying that they would be taking “all necessary measures” to ensure the safety of their employees and customers. Since shutting down operations, SkyCity has been working hard to support its employees through this difficult time. The company has set up an employee assistance fund and is providing counselling services for those who need it.
In a statement to the New Zealand Herald, SkyCity spokesperson Maria Gellie said: “We are aware of the police request and like the rest of the country are united in our desire for everyone to come home safely. We understand this situation is upsetting for those directly involved and New Zealanders as a whole. We have been in contact with the police during the day and will continue to cooperate fully with them.”
Sky City Casino has been a popular destination for backpackers in New Zealand. Many backpackers visit the casino regularly. This news has left many backpackers feeling uneasy about their personal safety and that of their friends.
However, this is not just affecting backpackers who are living in New Zealand. Many backpackers who are currently on holiday in the country are looking for ways to get home as quickly as possible.
As part of these measures, SkyCity announced that they would be closing all of their properties in Auckland and Christchurch.
As part of the nationwide lockdown in New Zealand, SkyCity Casino has closed all of its properties in Auckland and Christchurch. This is a huge blow to the economy, as the casino is one of the largest employers in both cities. However, SkyCity has stated that they are working closely with the government to ensure that their employees will be taken care of during this difficult time.
In addition to this, the casino has agreed to shut down its online gaming division. This will be devastating for many New Zealanders, as it is one of the only legal ways that they can gamble online. In particular, it is a massive hit for the local iGaming community, which is estimated to be worth around $2 billion a year.
However, despite closing the online division, SkyCity has stated that it will not exit the market altogether. Instead, they are looking for an “alternative secure platform” where New Zealanders can continue to play.
As part of the nationwide security measures, New Zealanders have been asked not to leave their homes. This is a huge blow for New Zealand’s tourism industry, as many people have already booked trips to the country. Guardian Australia reports that the prime minister has suggested that this policy could be in place for some time.
