First Pennsylvania casinos reopen after Covid-19 shutdown
Rivers Casino and the Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Pennsylvania have both reopened after a period of temporary closure enforced by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf last week announced plans for some counties in the state to move to the ‘green phase’, with certain Covid-19 restrictions to be relaxed in these areas.
Some 34 of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties have now advanced to the green phase of state’s reopening strategy, including three areas in which land-based casinos are based. Casinos in these counties can reopen and operate at 50% capacity.
As such, Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, began welcoming players again from yesterday (June 9), while Meadows in North Strabane Township, Washington, has reopened.
Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin in Farmington, Fayette County, is also set to resume activities from June 12.
