Pechanga to enforce stricter safety measures, bans certain types of face coverings

In an effort to keep its customers safe, Pechanga Resort Casino will enforce stricter coronavirus safety measures when it comes to face coverings. Effective September 1, bandanas, neck gaiters, face masks with vents or valves, and balaclavas will no longer be permitted.

Casino officials cited a recent Duke University study that found these types of face coverings do little to protect against the spread of coronavirus.

“The enhancement to the resort/casino’s comprehensive safety measures is put in place for the health and safety of guests, staff, and the community,” said casino officials. The new face mask requirement will be enforced at all times.

Pechanga also requires temperature checks for all persons entering the resort, mandates physical distancing from those not in their immediate parties, and was among the first casino to suspend smoking indoors.
