Scarlet Pearl reinstates mask mandate for employees
A file video posted earlier provided outdated information on casino’s vaccination rate. Scarlet Pearl is the first casino in the nation to have a 100 percent vaccination rate, officials said.
Scarlet Pearl has reinstated its mask mandate for casino employees.
A letter from the management team informed employees that because the Omicron variant of COVID-19 spreads so quickly and in the interest of employee safety, masks will again be required.
The mandate, the letter said is for associates only. Temperature checks also will be administered at the associate entrance and masks will be provided to the associates.
In addition, directors and those above that management level received a booster shot and all managers are required to receive a booster (6-months following last vaccine shot) and by January 15, 2022.
Scarlet Pearl is paying a $50 bonus to associates and supervisors who receive a booster shot. Vaccines will be available to employees beginning January 4, 2022, according to the letter.
