Grand Korea Leisure (GKL), a South Korean casino operator that serves only foreign players, resumed gaming operations on Wednesday (May 6), according to local media reports. The company suspended its casino operations for 43 days from March 24 amid the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company, an affiliate of the Korea Tourism Organization, operates three foreigner-only casinos in the country under the ‘Seven Luck’ brand. Prior to the reported restart, the closure period was extended twice.

The reopening coincides with a move to ease some of the so-called social distancing measures in place in South Korea from Wednesday beginning in early March. The decision to relax the rules came amid a slowdown in new COVID-19 infection cases, a coalition of South Korean news agencies reported.

As of Thursday’s start, South Korea recorded just two new cases in the past 24 hours, according to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

South Korea had a total of 10,806 cases of COVID-19, the disease related to the novel coronavirus, as of midnight Wednesday, killing 255 people.

The government has yet to lift quarantine requirements and entry restrictions for foreign visitors.

But Korean Air, the country’s largest airline, as measured by sales, said on Thursday it would reopen dozens of international flights in June, including services to Singapore’s city-state, China’s capital Beijing, and Malaysia’s capital, Kuala Lumpur, Yonhap reported, citing the airline’s statement.
