New Jersey casinos to reopen at 25% capacity from July 2
New Jersey’s Governor Phil Murphy has announced that casinos in the state will be permitted to reopen at limited capacity from July 2, after more than three months closed as a results of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Casinos have been closed since March 16 as part of a ban on gatherings of up to 50 people in the state, in an effort to slow the spread of Covid-19.
Murphy said that casinos will be permitted to open from July 2, just ahead of the Fourth of July weekend, at a maximum capacity of 25%.
This comes as restrictions on gatherings are gradually being eased, with a new executive order signed by the Governor allowing indoor gatherings of up to 100 persons, or 25% of a room’s capacity. Outdoor gatherings of 250 people are also now permitted.
