News released by the Government on 23 June is good for bingo lovers – those of the offline, traditional kind.
From 4 July, many more businesses and venues will be allowed to reopen in England but be expected to follow COVID-19 Secure guidelines.
Although the details are yet to be released officially, plans have been put in place by UK bingo club operators over the last few weeks.
Mecca ‘can’t wait’
At Mecca Bingo halls, staff have been busy working to ensure the highest possible standards of health and safety are present before the grand reopening.
In preparedness, training has been provided on safety measures including social distancing, hand sanitizer use and contactless use wherever and whenever possible.
Mecca Bingo said in a statement on their website:
“We can’t wait to welcome you back to Mecca Bingo clubs across the country, and since closing our doors our teams have been working round the clock to ensure we have put in place the highest standard of health and safety measures for our customers and team to be able to continue to enjoy the Mecca fun they know and love.
“We continue to follow the Government’s guidance closely and will share further information on our re-opening plans soon.
“Our teams have been working round the clock to put in a place the highest standard of health and safety measures to ensure the safety of you and our teams.
“All of our team have undergone training on all safety measures, these include social distancing in club, a capacity cap, enhanced cleaning, hand sanitiser stations, going contactless where possible and new protective screens.”
While contactless payments are being encouraged, cash will still be accepted at its 86 UK bingo halls upon reopening.
More signange will be available to help players through the club, and it’s important to note that some tables and slot machines may not be in use too.
