Visitors entering casinos have to present a negative Covid-19 test as of July 15, as new border policies allow visitors from Guangdong to visit Macau and then return without facing quarantine restrictions.

M

acau health authorities said Monday that about 4,000 casino workers have been tested for Covid-19 per day since new policies were enforced by the local government.

Since July 15, visitors entering casinos have to present a negative Covid-19 test (valid nucleic acid test certificate) apart from having to undergo body temperature checks and display a health identification code.

The next day, local health authorities started testing frontline workers – including dealers and security staff – from different casinos in groups, as reported by Macau Business.

The measures come after Guangdong authorities announced that people coming from Macau will no longer have to undergo the mandatory 14 days quarantine in nine cities of the Chinese Province, a measure that effectively allows visitors from the province to visit the city and then return without facing quarantine restrictions.

Macau has not reported any new confirmed Covid-19 case since June 25, with 46 reported so far and already discharged from medical care.
