PITTSBURGH--()--Rivers Casino Pittsburgh will resume operations Monday, Jan. 4, at 8 a.m., following the governor’s three-week yearend shutdown of all Pennsylvania casinos. The gaming floor will be open 24/7, with amended hours for indoor dining and capacity restrictions not to exceed 50% property wide.

The casino’s much-anticipated reopening means approximately 1,086 Team Members will return to work this week. More may follow as business levels return. Rivers Casino Pittsburgh currently employs approximately 1,320.

“We especially want to thank our Team Members, guests and the Pittsburgh community for their support throughout 2020,” said Rivers Casino General Manager Bill Keena. “We have every reason to expect 2021 will be a better year, and by continuing our focus on safety, we’re looking forward to a healthy, Happy New Year for all.”

All COVID-19 health and safety protocols remain in place, including masks or approved face-coverings, temperature checks, and social distancing for guests and Team Members, with no exceptions. Team Members continue to complete Daily COVID-19 Self Assessments, which have proven effective in preventing individuals who may have been exposed to the virus elsewhere from entering the property.

The Rivers Clean Team continues to work around the clock to keep the casino safe and sanitized. Air filtration technology from airPHX® and AtmosAirruns 24/7 property wide, continuously disinfecting surfaces and indoor air.

Rivers Casino Pittsburgh follows best practices from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and meets or exceeds all COVID-19 Casino Reopening Protocols announced by the PGCB. Additionally, Rivers Casino adheres to all guidelines issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and meets all operating requirements set by the Allegheny County Health Department.

The health and safety of our Team Members, guests and the community is our top priority. For the latest updates regarding health and safety protocols, please visit RiversCasino.com/Pittsburgh.
