MAVERICK GAMING DURING THE COVID-19 SHUTDOWN
As Maverick Gaming learned of public health and safety concerns during the emergent COVID-19 pandemic, new and strict health and safety policies were implemented at all of our properties. As the crisis grew, Maverick Gaming shut down all properties in accordance with public health requirements. The resulting impact to revenue, paired with the exclusion of non-Tribal gaming facilities from federal relief programs, required a temporary and significant reduction in payroll via furloughs of team members.
Despite the critical strain on resources, Maverick Gaming made the decision to pay its portion of health benefits for all its team members while facilitating unemployment applications.
During the shutdown, Maverick Gaming developed Health & Sanitation Guidelines to protect the safety of its team members and guests once operations resumed. Management also engaged in regular collaborative communication with Washington lawmakers, the Governor’s Office and regulators to help inform the development of effective public health practices tailored to address the unique circumstances of a gaming environment to ensure customer and team member safety is thoroughly considered.
As Washington State begins to allow for the resumption of business operations under Governor Inslee’s Safe Start Washington plan, Maverick Gaming is fully committed to continue serving as a partner in protecting public health and safety as we all work to overcome the devastating challenges of COVID-19 together.
