OUR QUEEN CLEAN COMMITMENT
As we begin welcoming our Guests and Team Members back to DraftKings at Casino Queen, we want to remind you that your health and safety are our top priority. With that in mind, we want to let you know of the work and planning that has been happening behind the scenes to show our commitment to your well-being by outlining our Queen Clean initiative.
This initiative has been developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The program follows advice and provisions set forth by a variety of public health officials, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). We are closely monitoring government policy changes, CDC guidelines, government mandates and public health data and advancements and will continue to make changes as necessary to ensure a safe and successful future.
To minimize the risk and enhance safety for our Guests and Team Members, we are using disinfectant products that have been pre-approved and certified by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use against COVID-19 and other emerging viruses, bacteria and other emerging pathogens.
These disinfectants are applied during our cleaning of guest hotel rooms, public spaces, restrooms, casino and other “high-touch” areas.
COVID-19 SPECIFIC INITIATIVES
To ensure the health and safety of our Guests and Team Members, we have implemented several new initiatives throughout our property. These include:
Guests and Team Members will be advised to practice physical distancing by standing at least six feet apart while standing in queues, using elevators, or moving around the casino or hotel, whenever possible. Areas where people congregate will be clearly marked with floor indicators and stanchions. Physical barriers will be present for interactions that do not allow for appropriate physical distancing. Restaurant tables, slot machines and other physical layouts have been arranged to ensure such appropriate distancing that meet or exceed local and state mandated guidelines.
Incident Response Controls
Questionnaire records and other tracing will be maintained, where possible, to assist with determining and notifying the appropriate resources and agencies when an individual has been on property whom later tests positive. This includes guest registration records, Team Member work assignments, key control tracing and surveillance video.
Capacity restrictions will be noted by area and outlet along with the facility in general. Physical distancing will determine capacity in most cases although we will continue to monitor professional guidance and regulatory requirements for updated recommendations.
Personal Protective Equipment
Team Members will be provided and required to wear an approved mask when entering any part of our facility. Casino Queen will also strongly encourage our guests to wear masks in public areas and will provide masks to any guest who needs one. Gloves will be worn by Team Members who require them to perform their jobs, such as food service Team Members and Team Members who clean public, hotel and back of house areas. Team Members will receive training on how to effectively use, clean (as applicable) and dispose of all PPE.
Proper handwashing and sanitizing is vital to combat the spread of the virus. All Team Members are instructed to wash hands, or use sanitizer when a sink is not available, every 60 minutes and after every occurrence of the following: use of restroom, sneezing, touching the face, blowing the nose, cleaning, sweeping, mopping, smoking, eating, drinking, entering or leaving their work area and after clocking in or out.
Additional santizier stations for customer use will be located throughout the property including at entry doors, gaming areas, entrances to restaurants, lobbies and restrooms. Floor signage for social distancing will be installed at all queuing locations.
Public Spaces Cleaning Protocols
All cleaning solutions will meet CDC recommended guidelines and be effective against viruses, bacteria and other airborne pathogens. A COVID-19 Cleaning Protocol is being established for each area of the property.
Public Spaces and Communal Areas – The frequency of cleaning and sanitizing will be increased in all public areas with an emphasis on frequent contact surfaces like counters, elevator buttons, door handles, public restrooms, ATMs, ticket and marketing kiosks, counters, slot machines, gaming tables, chips, dining surfaces and seating areas.
Guest Rooms – All guest room attendants will be instructed to pay attention to high-touch items including but not limited to: TV remotes, toilet seats and handles, door handles, sink handles, telephones, light switches, clocks, luggage racks and other surfaces.
HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) – We have always placed a high priority on air quality and embrace our policy of being a non-smoking facility. While we rigorously maintain our HVAC systems with regular cleaning protocols, we are committed to increasing the frequency and improving the process. We are also monitoring scientific information as it becomes available to mitigate the risk of virus transmission and continue to seek guidance from federal, state, and local resources.
Back of House – We have increased the frequency of cleaning and sanitizing high-traffic back of house areas with an emphasis on our Team Member dining room, entrances, restrooms, offices, security podiums, Human resources and training rooms.
