FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

RIVERS CASINO PITTSBURGH WILL TEMPORARILY SUSPEND OPERATIONS

PITTSBURGH—March 13, 2020—In the best interests of our Team Members, guests and the Greater Pittsburgh community, we are temporarily closing Rivers Casino Pittsburgh effective Sunday, March 15, at midnight for fourteen days. Although there have been no known cases of COVID-19 at the property, we are suspending operations out of an abundance of caution and to promote the social distancing recommended by health officials.

We will continue normal payroll for Team Members during the fourteen-day suspension.

We have been and will continue to carefully follow the advice and guidance of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with state and local public health experts—including the principles set forth in Mayor Peduto’s March 13 address.

The health and well-being of our Team Members, guests and the residents of Western Pennsylvania is our highest priority. We are grateful for their continued support.

We will continue to closely monitor the ever-changing information related to the coronavirus outbreak.

For updates during the temporary closure, please visit RiversCasino.com. Guests can still play their favorite online casino games at BetRivers.com, presented by Rivers Casino Philadelphia.
