Face Masks Now Voluntary at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa; Update to Safe + Sound Program is Based on Current CDC Guidance

Face masks are now voluntary at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa following an update to Safe + Sound Program guidelines at the casino complex.  The change was made based on the latest guidance on masks from the CDC and follows similar moves by area businesses as the vaccination rate increases and the infection rate declines.

Other components of the industry-leading Safe + Sound Program remain in place to ensure a quality entertainment experience in an environment that helps to keep guests and team members safe. The “Safe + Sound Clean Team” will clean and disinfect surfaces throughout the casino complex, with special emphasis on high-touch surfaces and common areas. Plexiglas dividers will separate players from each other and from team members in some areas. Casino air will pass through a high-quality air filtration system. Finally, hand-sanitizing stations will be available at entrances and throughout the casino complex.
