Games are coming back to casinos:
Atlantic City, New Jersey- New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy delayed plans to resume indoor dining on Monday and banned Atlantic
City casinos from reopening this week, prohibiting smoking and
drinking, which led to a casino canceling its plan to Plans to reopen in the short term.
Murphy said he took action because the outbreak of coronavirus continues in many parts of the country,
and people lack fulfillment with the use of masks and social alienation.
The decision immediately had an impact: Borgata, the best casino in Atlantic City, abandoned plans to reopen. It was originally planned to hold a “soft opening” of only invited people on Thursday,
and it will be open to the public from July 6.
Now, these things will not happen shortly, and it is not clear whether one or two blows to smoking and alcohol
prohibition later Monday will cause other casinos to postpone their reopening.
Murphy disclosed the smoking ban in a press release sent to reporters shortly before 10 pm. Monday. The press release also confirmed the oral report earlier in the day that when the casino reopened,
the government banned the provision of alcoholic beverages on the casino floor.
The executive order is even stricter, prohibiting the supply of any beverage or consumption of any food in the casino.
Murphy cited peaks in other states and reports
from New Jersey that people did not wear masks properly and kept their distance.
He said: “Unfortunately, the national situation and the steering knuckle behavior at home have forced us to restart indoor dining in the predictable future.”
He said about the timetable,
“I don’t think so this is the matter of some days or some weeks, the alternative is dangerous and bad”
New Jersey has been slowly reopening, and from Monday, indoor shopping malls have opened. Indoor dining will start again on Thursday with 25% capacity. The casino will also reopen on Thursday, and capacity will reach 25%. Murphy said we could exceed after it.
New Jersey is one of the hardest-hit states, and Murphy hinted at this when he canceled the restaurant reopening.
He said: “there is no one, who helps us, nobody wants to go into that stupid hell, all of us hard to get rid of there”
