The workers of Ivisa SA, in charge of the casino, explained the need for the casino to reopen, alongside the Entertainment Workers Union of Argentina, as urgent for the families that rely on this income "We are 80 families who are going through times of need. As the Casino has been closed since March, we are not receiving our full income".

Regarding the possible reopening of the casino, Díaz mentioned "The company Ivisa SA has to rent premises, and that it is authorised by the CPA to be able to operate. In the meantime, Ivisa SA has to pay the salary of its employees and pay the fee to the entity, which is in debt”. 

If Ivisa SA takes into account the measurements ordered, aswell as the infrastructure and sanitary requirements, the casino will be able to possibly reopen its doors in the near future. Díaz ended speaking about the matter with Buen Día "In this case, the Fund respects what the health authorities say, in that we have to be very responsible. The health regulations have only now allowed an event of this nature to take place, and it will, but always in accordance with the authorities".
