We are thrilled to announce the reopening date for Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots and the continued operation of all OTB & Casino locations. Things will be a little different for a while, but we are striving to deliver the fun, friendly and safe experience you’ve come to expect. Below is an overview of our current openings, as well as our new protocols put in place to ensure your safety when you visit us.
All guests and team members are required to wear an approved facial covering or mask which covers both their nose and mouth. Thy only exception is when consuming food or beverages. If you don’t have a mask don’t worry – we’d be happy to provide one for you.
City of New Orleans Offical vaccination mandate requires all guests and team members to show proof of at least one dose of a vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within the past 72 hours to gain entry.
Fair Grounds OTB & Casinos
All 15 Fair Grounds OTB & Casinos are open for your enjoyment. This includes Pari Mutuel wagering and video poker games at each location.
Safety is Our Top Priority
We are proud to be a part of the Greater New Orleans community and have worked with the Louisiana Gaming Control Board, state and local leadership, public health officials and sanitation consultants to develop comprehensive reopening protocols which include new health and safety precautions. These have been implemented at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots and all OTB & Casino locations.
Please do not visit if you have a fever, if you are not feeling well, have recently traveled outside the U.S., or have had contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19. Stay home and visit when the time is right.
Maintaining the Utmost Standards in Cleaning
While you are on property you will most likely notice trained employees working hard to continuously sanitize our spaces. This includes cleaning each gaming terminal and all hard surfaces with the use of EPA approved cleaning products that are effective against COVID-19.
Hand sanitizer stations have been installed at each property and will be readily available to you.
Minimizing Large Gatherings
As much as we love the excitement of special events, we will have to put these on hold for now. It just wouldn’t be safe to have large groups of people gathering around together. As soon as we are able to do this safely, we will bring them back for your enjoyment.
Food & Beverage Offerings
For the time being, Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots will offer pre-packaged food service only and our OTB & Casino snack bars will be limited to serving hotdogs, chips and candy.
