Rosie’s Temporarily Closing in Response to COVID-19 Concerns

On behalf of myself and the Colonial Downs Group, I wanted to personally reach out to you regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic. All Rosie’s locations, Richmond, Hampton, New Kent & Vinton, will close at the end of business today until Monday, March 30. While there are no known COVID-19 cases impacting anyone associated with any Rosie’s location, we believe this is the best decision to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

The health and safety of our employees and guests is our top priority and we are taking this action out of an abundance of caution as the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic continues to elevate concerns across the nation and around the world. In taking this action, we’ve closely followed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for social distancing as well as following directives made for the health and welfare of all Virginians by Governor Ralph Northam.

Rosie’s employees will be paid in full for this two-week period. Employee paychecks, paid time off and benefits will not be affected. Rosie’s employees have been encouraged to seek medical attention if they experience symptoms consistent with COVID-19. Colonial Downs Group has said any time spent away from work as a result of COVID-19 will not impact employees.

We strongly value our employees and guests and the contributions they make in the communities where we operate. We will continue to encourage everyone to follow the guidelines established by the CDC and our state of Virginia to protect themselves, loved ones and families to reduce health risks.

Thank you for being a valued guest.

Chief Operating Officer
