Statement by Allie Evangelista, Vice President & General Manager on the Reopening of Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course

“While the amenities our customers have come to know and love may be somewhat limited for the time being, the ability to safely welcome back our team members and guests remains our top priority. With this in mind, we have been working closely with the Ohio Lottery Commission, state and local leaders, and public health officials to finalize comprehensive Phase I reopening protocols and new health and safety precautions. Our returning team members will be trained on these procedures and our guests will see reminder signage about them throughout the property. These new protocols include, but are not limited to, the following:


Social Distancing

  • We will limit capacity on our gaming floor to no more than 50% of our maximum occupancy.
  • The installation of floor decals and signage to strictly enforce social distancing guidelines in areas where lines typically form.
  • Gaming machines will be configured to enforce social distancing requirements.
  • Live music, entertainment, convention, and banquet services will remain suspended.
  • There will be no large drawings, tournaments, or special events.
  • Take 2 Food Court is open.
  • Skybox Sports Bar will reopen on Friday, August 21.
  • Valet will be closed.
  • Property restricted to guests 21 and over, this now includes racing and simulcast.

Health & Safety

  • Team members and vendors will be required to wear masks and will undergo a self-assessment health screening each day, including temperature checks, prior to their shift.
  • In support of Governor DeWine and in order to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course will be requiring all persons in public areas to wear a mask covering the face and nose. Patrons may remove masks temporarily while eating or drinking or when asked by casino staff for identification.
  • VLT machines will be thoroughly and regularly cleaned throughout the day.
  • Sanitizer stations will be installed on the racino floor and be readily available throughout the facility.
  • We will close the facility for a period of time each night for a deep cleaning.
  • In support of Governor DeWine and the Liquor Control Commission, starting July 31, alcoholic beverage sales will stop at 10 p.m. and all drinks must be consumed by 11 p.m.
