Health & Safety

Guidelines

Everyone is getting ready for new routines and ways to still find entertainment in life. We, at Running Aces, are ready to share with you some of our health and safety measures in-place.  You can also view our phased opening plan updates here.
 
As we open in phases, there will be many safety measures in place to make sure we are following all guidelines from the CDC and our Governor to ensure that our employees and guests stay as safe as possible. Some of the safety measures we are implementing or increasing include:
  • An added Health and Safety Compliance Administrator to ensure all policies and procedures are being followed
  • Regulated entrance and exits into the building with reduced occupancy
  • Non-contact temperature checks for all guests and employees that enter the building through a thermal imaging camera
  • Facemasks will be required for all employees and guests in the building
  • Social distancing our gaming tables and spreading them throughout the building
  • Reducing the number of people on gaming tables
  • Added Plexiglas shields for the dealers/players to be separated along with player/player shields
  • Daily cleaning of our gaming chips
  • Increased frequency of changing out the cards on the gaming tables
  • Increased staffing levels to increase cleaning frequency of high traffic areas
  • Reduced restaurant operations
  • We continue to be smoke-free throughout the facility, including the gaming floor and hotel
 

Horse Racing:

Live horse racing will start on June 20th with all of our race times to start at 1:00 p.m. CST.  The horse racing experience will be different this year with limited access to the main building. Horse racing guests will have heir own set of safety measures that include: 
  • Face masks must be worn by all guests

The brand new Running Aces Hotel will be opening June 1st. It is the newest hotel in the area and has many great features such as expanded hallways throughout the facility, the largest standard rooms in the state, and a 65” TV in every room. Some of the additional safety measures the hotel is taking include:
  • Each check-in will receive a small pack of sanitizing wipes and instructions 
  • All paper collateral will be removed from guest rooms
  • Upon check out, rooms will be cleaned and not re-rented for 24-48 hours
