23-Year-Old Auckland SkyCity Casino Worker Positive for Covid-19
The casino worker has tested positive for the rare and deadly Covid-19 virus. Many players have turned to play casino online – it just isn’t safe anymore!
A 23-year-old SkyCity Casino employee has been found to be positive for Covid-19. The Ministry of Health is currently investigating how the infection was contracted, and whether it can be traced back to a food source or an environmental hazard at work. This is the first time that a New Zealand worker has been diagnosed with Covid-19 in over two decades!
SkyCity posted an update about the case on Instagram this evening.
SkyCity has released a statement confirming that one of its staff members is suffering from Covid-19, which was contracted while working in their Platinum Gaming Room between 8:30pm and 6am last night Friday 13th to Saturday 14th morning.
The Auckland casino is on the Ministry of Health’s list for monitoring due to a person who later tested positive for the virus having visited there last Saturday. The worker was at work in Fisher & Paykel’s East Tamaki factory Thursday night and went home after their shift, but has been notified by authorities that they are now under observation because it remains unclear whether or not this could be an isolated incident. According to emergency procedures laid out by medical staff, masks have also been distributed throughout affected areas as a precautionary measure until further notice can provide more information about what precautions need to be taken next.
