Many companies have decided to temporarily shut down in the USA to tackle the virus effectively. Now, Caesars Entertainment Corporation is the latest in the list of the companies that are planning to shut their operations temporarily.

Caesars Entertainment Corporation CEO Tony Rodio has recently shared a YouTube video where he can be heard as saying that he is unsure when Caesars’ properties shall be able to reopen. However, Tony Rodio asserted that he remains confident that Caesars Entertainment shall soon “hit the ground running.”

Tony Rodio said that he believes that it shall be a gradual ramp, but Caesars Entertainment will do well just like any other company in the industry.

Tony Rodio also revealed that the company had witnessed its best two months’ period in its entire history in January and February. But things changed in March.
