Casinos Have no Date for Reopening Yet

Atlantic City’s casinos, which recently saw an uptick in business after years of losses, have suffered historic drops in revenue and laid off tens of thousands of workers since being ordered to close their gambling floors two months ago because of the coronavirus pandemic. But even as he’s slowly taking steps to reopen some businesses in New Jersey, Gov. Phil Murphy said Thursday he still doesn’t have a date for when Atlantic City’s nine casinos will be allowed to reopen. Some casinos are still accepting hotel reservations, especially as beaches reopen for the summer season. But their gambling floors remain closed.
