Atlantic City: As part of the ongoing precautions for Coronavirus, Governor Murphy has ordered all the casinos in New Jersey to close tonight at 20:00. Once they close, they are likely to remain closed for two weeks. This marks the fifth time in gambling history the casinos have closed to the public. Most were related to natural disasters, with one time being due to the government shutdown. New Jersey casinos join the movement from at least 15 other states with legalized gambling. The casinos will close the gambling floor and most restaurants, but the hotels and online gaming will remain operational.
MGM Properties have begun to close their Las Vegas properties, but no statewide mandate has been established in Nevada yet for casinos.
