Atlantic City Casinos Are Slowly Opening Up With Some Restrictions





The New Jersey Governor has allowed the opening of the casinos in the Atlantic City on Thursday and Friday with some restrictions. 

Finally, the gates of the Atlantic City’s casinos will be opened for the visitors. After 108 days of lockdown, the sound of slot machines beeping, the tumbling of dice, and card dealings will echo in Atlantic City on Thursday as the casinos will reopen after the lockdown imposed due to the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020.
The rules of gambling have drastically changed to adapt to the new world. The gamblers and visitors will not be permitted to drink, eat, or smoke in the casinos. Masks will be made compulsory in the common public areas in the casino and as soon as the visitors enter, their temperatures will be checked as a precautionary measure.
Out of the nine casinos in Atlantic City, five have received permission to open up in the first phase on Thursday. Resorts, Golden Nugget, Tropicana, Ocean, and Hard Rock have made it to the list of casinos permitted by New Jersey to reopen today, i.e. on Thursday. The remaining three casinos – Bally’s, Harrah’s, and Ceasers – will wait for another day until Friday to open their gates.
Out of the casinos in Atlantic City, Borgata is the only casino to stay shut during this period. After Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey planned to cancel the approval for indoor dining in Atlantic City, the management of Borgata decided quickly to cancel its plan to reopen. For the casinos planning to reopen on Thursday and Friday, the governor also imposed bans on smoking and drinking. Until today, Borgata has not planned for its reopening date.
These were the last moment changes announced on Monday late night’s press release. The casinos had already planned their reopening, but the sudden announcement abruptly forced them to halt their preparations.
The casinos are still allowed to offer takeout foods that can be eaten in the hotel rooms or outside the casino.
