Coverings and face shields required as table games return to Delaware casinos


Table games have returned to Delaware’s three racetrack-casinos, effective Wednesday.

The three venues, Dover Downs, Delaware Park and Harrington Raceway and Casino resumed slots operation and as of Monday are allowed to operate at 60 percent capacity with proper social distancing.

Simulcast operations remain closed at Harrington and Dover but have resumed at Delaware Park, which started its horse-racing schedule this week.

According to a Dover Downs post, dealers and players must wear a cloth face covering and a face shield while playing table games (a face shield will be provided). If the table is full, a floor supervisor will reserve a future spot.

The restrictions reflect the range of emotions possible at the tables that can include yelling, now widely viewed as a way to spread COVID-19.

Hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes will be available for dealers and customers.

Delaware was the first out of the gate in the region in reopening casinos.

Dover Downs has reopened its Joey Longo’s Italian restaurant and the hotel.

Delaware Park has opened At the Rail restaurant at the White Clay Creek Country Club.
