TELLER COUNTY, Colo. (KRDO) -- Casinos can now let people use slot machines, and movie theaters and places of worship just got the OK to reopen in Teller County with limited capacities.
According to an update from Teller County on Monday, the state approved a variance request to reopen those businesses and others during the safer-at-home phase of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Under the guidelines, capacity for public gatherings is limited to 50% with no more than 175 people inside any indoor space and 250 people outside. Workers will also have to wear masks at all times, and guests will be notified that they should not enter if they have COVID-19 symptoms.
Casinos won't be able to reopen gaming tables just yet, but slot machines will be open with social distancing in place.
The Ramblin Express bus will also be back in service, but it needs to be disinfected on a daily basis and cleaned between each trip, according to the variance.
For movie theaters, guests will be encouraged to wear face coverings into and inside the movie theater. Customers will also be asked whether they have symptoms upon entry. Theaters will be disinfected between movie showings and concession lines have to offer six feet distancing.
