In spite of the approval of the health and safety protocols announced on Monday, Cabinet Chief Walter Martos said gaming venues have not been allowed to reopen yet as Peru reaches phase 4 in the nation’s economic recovery plan.

"The different sectors of the economy, with a month in advance, have to submit with the Ministry of Health proposed safety guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but the reopening of casinos and other establishments with slot machines has not been authorized yet," Walter Martos told local media when asked about the gambling industry.

The Cabinet Chief said that a new COVID-19 outbreak in Peru would not have as much impact as it had in Europe because, unlike this continent, Peru is "reactivating" its economy in a very progressive and careful way, and that is why gambling venues have not been authorized to resume operations.

Sources told Yogonet that the reopening of gambling establishments will be analyzed by mid-October. "We are still evaluating the different possibilities," Martos concluded.
