Black Hawk Casino Partnering with City Wide of
Oklahoma to Provide Sterile Gaming Environment
SHAWNEE (September 10, 2020) – In an effort to provide a safe but entertaining place for its customers, Black Hawk Casino has implemented an ongoing sanitizing schedule for guests looking to “clean house” through jackpots and numerous other daily promotions.
Black Hawk is partnering with City Wide of Oklahoma to provide a casino that is safe for customers seeking gaming entertainment during the worldwide pandemic. With the COVID-19 virus affecting everyone’s lives, Black Hawk will be providing four scheduled cleanings each day along with routine cleaning throughout the day and night.
“Our number-one goal as we transition through this pandemic is to provide a safe and sterile environment for our guests and employees,” Robert Abney, a Black Hawk executive, said. “We are committed to keeping the entire casino disinfected so that everyone is able to enjoy themselves to the fullest while they are here.”
City Wide will be providing cleaning crews and oversight of a deep-cleaning process that involves a hospital-grade chemical used to maintain a disinfected environment at the casino, which recently re-opened its doors to the public. The cleaning chemicals, which have been approved by the CDC and EPA, have proven to be effective against hundreds of viruses,
Cleaning and disinfecting crews from City Wide are scheduled to work two eight-hour shifts that includes a deep-cleaning and electrostatic cleaning each day at 7 a.m. Casino staff have also been trained to work the other eight-hour shift. Cleaning crews from City Wide and Black Hawk will work together to provide ongoing cleaning services during operating hours throughout the casino.
“We believe the deep-cleaning process we have set up for Black Hawk Casino will be very effective at maintaining an ongoing disinfected environment that will make guests feel right at home,” Abney said. “We have always taken pride in our efforts to provide a positive experience for our guests and these efforts are another example of the steps we are willing to take to make a difference.”
Black Hawk Casino seeks to provide the most entertaining gaming experience in Oklahoma while supporting the objectives of the Sac and Fox Nation. With locations in Shawnee and Stroud (Sac and Fox Casino), the 24-hour casino is committed to exceeding its guest experiences by developing a superior team of employees who are responsive to community needs and focused on maximizing the entertainment value to the customers.
