All closures are related to state officials' efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

In addition to these closures, Valley Forge Casino Resort will remain closed until Friday, March 27, following a previous order by the Governor of Pennsylvania mandating the closure of all entertainment venues in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

There have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at any Boyd Gaming property. All closures are due solely to state mandates aimed at preventing the spread of the disease. All other Boyd Gaming properties remain in operation at this time.

The safety and well-being of our team members and customers is our utmost priority. Starting in February, Boyd Gaming has been following stringent CDC-recommended protocols at its properties nationwide, including frequent handwashing by team members, increased placement of hand sanitizers and increased sanitation of frequently touched surfaces. The Company has been advising all team members who are experiencing flu-like symptoms to go home immediately and contact their health care professional.

The Company is continuing to monitor developments related to COVID-19 and reinforcing our policies as necessary.
