Foxwoods lifts masking rules for vaccinated visitors

Foxwoods Resort Casino has dropped its mask requirements for fully vaccinated guests.

The policy change was announced Friday by Foxwoods President and CEO Jason Guyot and went into effect Saturday. Guests who have not been vaccinated are being asked to continue wearing masks or face coverings, Guyot said, and Foxwoods staff will be required to do the same, regardless of their vaccination status.

“We ask everyone to remain considerate of others around them and trust guests to take appropriate measures based on their vaccine status,” the statement read, likely signalling that Foxwoods will not require guests to show proof of vaccination to go maskless.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced May 13 that it would no longer recommend fully vaccinated people wear face masks. The change was adopted by Gov. Ned Lamont as part of Connecticut’s reopening on May 19, when almost all remaining COVID-19-related occupancy restrictions were lifted.

Guyot said there still may be “exceptions” to the new rules, including events held in certain Foxwoods venues.

In light of climbing vaccination rates, Foxwoods recently reopened several attractions on its property, including the HighFlyer zipline, the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and the Norwich Spa at Foxwoods.
