Today, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan issued an emergency order to close all Maryland casinos, racetracks, and simulcast betting facilities to the public indefinitely, due to the serious public health emergency created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a result, Horseshoe Baltimore will be temporarily closed effective at 10 PM tonight, Sunday, March 15, 2020.
To be clear, there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at Horseshoe Baltimore to date. However, for the health and safety of our team members and guests, the casino will close to the public beginning tonight.
This decision is a precautionary measure only, made to ensure we are in compliance with local rules and regulations.
During the closure, Horseshoe Baltimore will be paying two weeks of pay to all team members and benefits will not be interrupted.
Horseshoe Baltimore is closely monitoring this evolving situation and will work with local officials to establish a reopening date as soon as it is appropriate to do so. We look forward to welcoming back team members and guests soon.
Caesars has implemented enhanced cleaning and sanitizing protocols throughout our facilities, based on recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control. More information on those protocols is available here.
