As Pennsylvania inches closer to going fully into the Green Phase of COVID-19 reopening, Rutter's announced it is re-opening its video gaming rooms to customers.

Each room continues to offer five machines for customers to enjoy, the company said Monday in a press release. Additional precautions have also been taken to ensure customer safety, such as:

  • Plexiglass between machines
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers in the room
  • Stickers designating where to stand while waiting for machines to open

These safety measures are in accordance with Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board guidelines for video gaming rooms, Rutter's said. 

In addition to Pennsylvania Gaming Control safety protocols, Rutter’s said it will continue to follow CDC recommendations and Pennsylvania Department of Health guidelines throughout its stores.

“We are excited to be providing entertainment for our customers once again. However, the health and safety of everyone in our stores continues to be our top priority,” states Scott Hartman, Rutter’s President and CEO. “We are operating our Video Gaming Rooms in accordance with Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board regulations and guidelines to help promote a fun and safe experience.”
