Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino was made aware a team member working at the resort has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual last worked at the resort on July 4, and is now recovering at home. The resort has initiated immediate response protocols set forth in its phased reopening plan.
Seneca Niagara is also working with the team member directly to establish whom they may have come in contact with, to guide them to the appropriate resources, including seeking medical guidance through their physician. In an abundance of caution, Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino has completed a deep sanitization of all applicable areas per their response protocols.
All team members are being made aware of this information through internal communications. The area where the team member was working has been regularly cleaned and disinfected daily as part of Seneca Niagara’s enhanced safety protocols. That area is now temporarily shut down to undergo additional deep cleaning. It has also been confirmed that the affected individual complied with the required face mask protocols while on property.
Seneca Gaming Corporation’s health, sanitation and physical distancing plan includes a number of protocols to minimize the risk of spread of COVID-19, including mandatory face masks for all employees and guests while on property, social distancing, and a rigorous cleaning regimen in all areas throughout every day. Both guests and employees are strongly encouraged to follow all safety protocols in place and to stay home if they are experiencing any symptoms or not feeling well.
“The health and safety of our guests, team members, and their families remains our highest priority, and we wish our team member a full and quick recovery. We have established protocols in place to address any guest or team members who present a positive or suspected positive case or have had potential exposure,” said David Sheridan, interim CEO and CFO of Seneca Gaming Corporation. “We are actively addressing this information per our strict protocols set forth in our health, sanitation and physical distancing plan. Our team is in contact with the team member. We are also guiding team members who may have encountered the affected team member to the appropriate resources for testing and to seek medical guidance through their physician.”
