Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt. Pleasant and Saganing Eagles Landing Casino and Hotel will no longer allow guests to wear certain types of masks.

The casinos are banning masks they say have been found to be less effective in preventing the transmission of COVID-19.

Unacceptable masks include bandanas, masks with ventilation valves and neck gaiters.

This change will take effect on Sept. 14 beginning at 8 a.m.

They say they made this decision in accordance with recently updated CDC guidelines.
