Gaming facilities have been a major source of income and entertainment in West Alabama.  So, when businesses considered non-essential were forced to close at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Greene County (where most of the facilities are located) was hit extremely hard.

Not only do the gaming facilities offer employment, but their winnings also support various charities which serve their communities.

The oldest such business in Greene County has announced it is back in business.

Greenetrack reopened its doors Wednesday under a new set of guidelines for patrons and employees alike.

While most businesses have included mandatory personal protective equipment, social distancing, and sanitizing stations, Greenetrack has also prohibited smoking. In addition, Plexiglass has been installed throughout the facility to enhance social distancing practices while playing and while exchanging money.

In addition to electronic bingo, Greenetrack offers traditional bingo and the chance to place wagers on greyhound and thoroughbred horse racing as well as other additives such as concerts, giveaways, food and drink specials, and discounted group rates.

Those planning to enter the facility should plan to have their temperatures checked and to adhere to all new safety guidelines.
