EVERETT, MASS. (WHDH) - Officials at the Encore Boston Harbor in Everett said they are taking precautionary measures to protect their guests from the novel coronavirus. In a statement released Tuesday, officials said they have engaged a consulting epidemiologist from Johns Hopkins University Hospital and are enacting new policies in line with recommendations issued from the Center for Disease Control and the Mass.

Encore Boston Harbor has a detailed update on their website  of the precautions they are taking for guests and employees to keep them safe:

“We are in constant communication with our employees to reinforce our sanitization safety procedures in both guest-facing and back-of-house areas. We are sanitizing high-traffic public areas at an increased frequency.

  • Hand sanitizers are located throughout public and back-of-house locations. Sanitizers are refilled and checked regularly.
  • Public touch points, such as handrails, elevator buttons, telephones, faucets, door handles and knobs are cleaned multiple times throughout the day.
  • Surfaces such as front desk, restaurant counters and dining tables are wiped regularly.
  • The casino gaming floor slot machines are wiped and surfaces cleaned multiple times throughout the day.

We have established special food and beverage precautionary measures.

Safeguarding the health of our guests and employees is of the utmost importance. As always, our food and beverage operation will continue to hold itself to the highest standards of hygiene and food-handling practices. We employ an in-house Director of Health and Food Safety who works closely with the City of Everett Health Inspector to ensure these standards are upheld during this time.  As a precaution, we have specific protocols in place for food and beverage including:

  • Increased frequency of sanitation of all shared utensils.
  • A frequent program of sanitation of work surfaces in back-of-house and high guest traffic areas front-of-house.
  • All food and beverage employees are following a rigorous routine of hand washing.
  • Any employee feeling ill is encouraged to stay at home.

All restaurants will remain fully open and operational during this time.

All departments have implemented hand washing or sanitizing procedures to take place multiple times during the employee’s shift.

  • All employees are instructed each day on correct hand sanitizing procedures, including washing with soap and hot water for a minimum of 20 seconds.
  • Employees are instructed to wash hands before and after eating and before returning to a work area.
  • Table gaming employees are instructed to wash hands after every break before returning to a game.
  • All of the flat surfaces and high touchpoints within all of our guest and employee transportation options (eg, motor coaches, neighborhood runners, harbor shuttles, car service, limos, employee shuttles) are being sanitized with disinfectants that kill both COVID-19 and flu-like viruses in between every trip.

All Wynn employees are prohibited from reporting to work with a respiratory illness that can be transmitted to others.

  • Employees insured by the company have access to healthcare, many of whom also have access to a 24-hour telemedicine provider.”

They also noted, “If we implement additional precautions based on new developments and CDC recommendations, we will note them on this page.” Click here to check for updates.

Their recommendations for what you can do to stay healthy:

  • “Wash your hands: Do this frequently using soap and water for at least 20 seconds.”
  • “Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth: This is a habit for many, but ending it can keep us all safe.”
  • “Avoid close contact with people who are sick: If you notice that someone is unwell, stay about 6 feet away.”
