Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort reaches 100 percent COVID vaccination rate

Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort is the first casino in the country to reach a 100 percent COVID-19 vaccination rate among employees.

All associates of Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort have had at least one shot of the COVID-19 vaccine. The Scarlet Pearl invested over $500,000 to date for their vaccine effort, including $300 in cash to each associate and supervisor who completed the requirement to obtain a COVID-19 vaccination.

The vaccine efforts was one of many actions the property took to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus to employees, customers, and the region.

Other initiatives included providing complimentary COVID testing at the Scarlet Pearl’s on-site medical clinic and providing on-site COVID-19 vaccinations to the public. Scarlet Pearl VP Marketing Ben Koff said, “It was a process that we had been working on for several months and it really came down to a few key critical things. It came down to education, it came down to communication, and it came down to compassion. It was just talking through what’s going on, not only here, but it on our community and it’s really been incredibly affective.”

A $50,000 donation was given to the Gulf Coast Community Foundation to fund their vaccinations efforts.
