Play It Safe™ | Commitment To Care

Program Details

Delaware North’s Play It Safe | Commitment to Care Program is a comprehensive program to help keep guests and employees safe and slow the spread of infectious diseases like COVID-19.

We’ve reengineered our operating procedures to minimize contact risk and bolstered hygiene protocols to meet or exceed best-practice guidelines set forth by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Each of our facilities undergoes rigorous ongoing deep-cleaning and disinfection.

Key elements of the Play It Safe program include:

  • Based on updated CDC guidance due to the emergence of the Delta variant of COVID-19, we are strongly recommending that all guests wear a mask when visiting Orange City Racing & Card Club, regardless of vaccination status. All associates will return to wearing masks at this time.
  • All incoming guests will be added to a guest registry and their identity will be stored as a record of their visit.
  • An on-site Clean Team has been created, and its members are equipped with Ecolab® multi-surface cleaner and disinfectant to conduct ongoing sanitization of all surfaces. They will help to protect guests by dispensing hand sanitizer and spot cleaning at the tables and other surfaces on request.
  • Dealers will have hand sanitizer spray bottles at each table, and tables will be sanitized after a game breaks. Patrons will be required to sanitize their hands when joining a table. Chairs will be sanitized after a guest departs a game.
  • Playing cards and poker chips will be rotated on a schedule as recommended by experts in infectious disease control.
  • Social distancing protocols are in place throughout the facility.
  • Hand-sanitizing stations have been added at the entrance and throughout the facility.
  • Some service offerings may be limited or unavailable to help maintain safe social distancing and health and safety guidelines.
  • As always, no smoking will be permitted within the facilities, and designated smoking areas are maintained outside of the buildings.

Standards for our employees:

  • All associates are required to wear a mask.
  • Sanitize their hands when they report to work and are required to wash and sanitize their hands frequently throughout the shift.
  • Undergo a comprehensive Play It Safe Training Program.

New entry screening procedures:

We require that patrons maintain safe social distancing outside the facility while waiting to gain entry as well as inside the facility.

Guests are instructed that they should not approach the facility it they have any symptoms or risk factors for COVID-19.

Symptoms and risk factors for COVID-19:

Patrons who have any of the following symptoms or risk factors should NOT attempt to enter the facility.

You have been in close contact with anyone diagnosed with or suspected of being infected with COVID-19 in the last 14 days.

You are suffering from any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever of 100.4 degrees or higher (within past 72 hours)
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • New loss of smell or taste

  • Muscle pain
  • Unexplained headache
  • Sore throat

The CDC guidelines state that you should remain in quarantine for at least ten days after you first experience symptoms and 72 hours after your symptoms subside.

COVID-19 Reporting:

To ensure the privacy of our guests and associates, we do not publicly disclose an individual employee or guest having tested positive. In the event there is a guest or associate who we learn has tested positive, we notify the local health department to perform applicable contact tracing and to follow any directions they may have if there are any additional steps we should take.
