Greektown Casino-Hotel Houses First Responders

Through collaboration with local government officials, Greektown Casino-Hotel opened its doors to first responders fighting COVID-19.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the casino industry has adapted to maintain the health and safety of both customers and employees. Greektown Casino-Hotel in Detroit has gone above and beyond to support first responders by opening its doors to house police officers, firefighters and emergency medical technicians, who were worried they could expose their families to COVID-19.

The Greektown Casino-Hotel opened 40 rooms on two separate floors for Detroit’s first responders and took guests’ temperatures every time they left or entered the building, assuring first responders and employees remained healthy.

With state and local regulations now permitting Greektown Casino-Hotel’s opening, it is continuing its commitment to the health and safety of its community by taking the following steps:

  • Implementing state-of-the-art HVAC system with 100% fresh air intake and exhaust.
  • Requiring masks for all team members, guests and vendors, and recording temperatures upon entry.
  • Installing plexiglass barriers at all cashier cages, table games and promotion centers.
  • Training employees on cleaning and disinfecting processes.

Greektown Casino-Hotel has shown its commitment to social responsibility by helping first responders, as well as its commitment to the Detroit community at large.
