ATLANTIC CITY, NJ—All nine of this city’s resort-casinos have temporarily suspended operations to reduce the spread of COVID-19 following an order by New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy. The properties shut down on Monday at 8 p.m., with some remaining opening until all guests checked out this morning.
The properties that have shuttered temporarily are Eldorado Resorts’ Tropicana Atlantic City, Ocean Casino Resort, MGM Resorts International’s Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Caesars Atlantic City, Bally’s Atlantic City, Harrah’s Atlantic City, Resorts Casino Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City and Golden Nugget Atlantic City.
Gov. Murphy said in a press conference on Monday, “All casinos…will close entirely effective at 8:00 p.m. this evening until such time that it is deemed safe for their opening. The good news is online gaming will continue. The bad news is, not much to wager on.”
