Macau casinos to remain open at least for now
The government of Macau has said that it won’t close casinos as a result of the detection of four community Covid-19 cases this week.
The cases led authorities to order the shut down of entertainment venues and to carry out mass testing. Police have cordoned the zone where the infected family lives and declared it a “red zone”.
Ho Iat Seng, Macau’s Chief Executive, said casinos won’t have to shut for now “because the problem did not happen there.”
