SkyCity casinos to return to normal after New Zealand lifts COVID-19 restrictions

SkyCity Entertainment Group has announced operations in most of its New Zealand casinos will return to normal after the country lifted the majority of its coronavirus restrictions.

On 8 June, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern revealed the country had moved its alert down to level one, after reporting no active COVID-19 cases.

That means social distancing is no longer required, while there are no limits on public gatherings. However, borders still remain closed to foreign travellers.

Casino operator SkyCity is now able to return to normal hours in all its casinos within the next few days, except the Wharf in Queenstown, as will most of its restaurants and the Sky Tower.

Social distancing and capacity restrictions will no longer apply, after they were among the measures introduced as SkyCity reopened its casinos in Auckland, Hamilton and Queenstown on 14 May, after closing on 23 March.

SkyCity Entertainment Group CEO Graeme Stephens said: "We are extremely excited to be welcoming all SkyCity customers back to our precincts.

"It will be fantastic to be busy again and able to have the public enjoy the many different facets of our properties.

"SkyCity remains committed to maintaining robust health and safety standards to manage the risks associated with COVID-19 and will be encouraging customers to maintain contact tracing via the Government’s NZ COVID Tracer app."
