Zaia (Veneto governor): ‘Ready guidelines to reopen casinos and gaming halls’

The governor of Veneto, Zaia, announces that the regional guidelines for reopening casinos and gaming halls are already ready, hoping for a call by the government.

“In fact, we decided all the guidelines, the entertainment venues, the discos, the casinos and the gaming halls. We are waiting for a call by the Government to understand what will be done with these guidelines.”

The governor of the Veneto Region, Luca Zaia, said this today, June, the 1st, on the day when the new regional ordinance enters into force, which invalidates, among other things, the obligation to use the protective masks outdoors, but not in places indoors.

“As regards travels, I confirm that I am against asking or imposing limitations on those who come to Veneto. I think it is essential that there is free and responsible movement, in compliance with the rules”, Zaia explains.

A few hours ago, Zaia talked about the gaming issue, announcing the arrival of a second ordinance, by June, the 15th, to regulate the reopening of discos and casinos, and saying that he “talked during these days with his colleague Toti too. They have the Sanremo Casino, we have the one in Venice to be reopened”.
