Atlantic City casinos closed until further notice
There’s not one place in the world that isn’t feeling the effects of the Coronavirus. So, it’s no surprises that Atlantic City is also getting its defenses up. Indeed, everyone in the Garden State is feeling it. Especially after Murphy’s conference yesterday.
All and all, the purpose of the broadcast was to tell folks that as of tomorrow March 18th, a new series of measures would be in effect. According to him, this was inevitable as New Jersey currently has 178 reported cases of Coronavirus.
Preventative measure to lessen the Risk
To start with, Murphy is actively discouraging any travel between 8 AM to 5 PM. Then he of course announced that all casinos, race tracks, theaters and gyms are ban to the public as of yesterday 8 PM.
But with that said, Murphy also confirmed that online gambling would continue. And added “bad news there’s not much to wager on”. With this comment, he’s, of course, referring to the series of games that were recently cancelled.
Naturally, online slot games aren’t affected by the Coronavirus. So it’s still game on for this type of games of chances. But with that said, as we could read on the Golden Nugget website, account holders cannot visit the casino cage to deposit and withdraw. Hence, patrons will need to fall back on eWallets to play. Most online casinos in Atlantic City accepts visa, PayPal, American Express, MasterCard and bank transfer.
High Profile Cases
One of the most recent cases is the Head of New York and New Jersey’s Port Authority. Also, New York Governor Cuomo believes he may have caught it while at the airport.
However, it’s not just that is Atlantic City stepping up. Murphy confirmed that all neighboring states are also enforcing similar measure too.
Coronavirus will affect everyone, everywhere, and efforts will increase daily as the fight against Covid-19 goes on. Everyone knows that they need to be careful and make sure that they do everything they can to stay safe and healthy.
