Boyd’s New Casino and Resort Policies

Each property reopening shared a short video produced by Boyd highlighting the company’s new health and safety protocols. Additionally, the company shared new cleaning policies on its website. All guests are being encouraged to wear facial coverings to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Boyd’s casinos in Louisiana and Mississippi will provide customers with complimentary personal protective equipment (PPE). Resort hotel rooms will no longer be cleaned on a daily basis to limit contact between staff and guests. Boyd’s hotel rooms will be supplied with extra towels to minimize the need for housekeeping visits.

Boyd plans to provide single-use condiments and napkins in all dining locations. Restaurants and bars are subject to reduced capacity limits to provide enough space for social distancing.

For casino properties with sportsbooks, the company’s updated policy states that every other betting window will be open to adhere to social distancing guidelines. Seating will be rearranged to allow customers adequate distance from each other.
