US.- Casinos in Atlantic City are all set to reopen when the state lifts Covid-19 restrictions this week.

Casinos in New Jersey will be able to operate at 25 per cent capacity from July 2.

Properties have been getting ready for reopening after three months closed due to Covid-19 pandemic.

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has announced that guests and workers will be required to wear face coverings with masks being provided at the entrance if needed. The casino also will take the temperature of guests and employees before they enter the venue and bar entry to anyone with a temperature higher than 100.4F (38C).

Although it has not yet announced its reopening date, Golden Nugget has had a player development team inside properties to make sure machines and tables adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Resorts Casino Hotel has launched a “Stay Safe Work Safe” plan, increasing hand sanitiser stations throughout the casino, glass dividers for all slot machines and tables, and social distancing rules.

Ocean Casino Resort has reported it has implemented several health and safety rules and placed over 200 fixed sanitisation stations in the casino.

CEO Terri Glebocki told New Jersey News Network: “You’re going to see a bottle of hand sanitiser anywhere you go. You’re going to see wipes if you want to wipe down your own equipment, You’re going to see twice as many people cleaning the casino floor as you did before—we call them ‘The Ocean Clean Team.’”

Another casino to announce its opening on July 2 is the Tropicana AC. According to its Twitter account, the casino is working with public health officials and regulators to implement safety and cleaning standards.
