Nevada citizens urged not to visit casinos to avoid the spread of COVID-19
Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak said that new measures to minimize the spread of COVID-19 will be introduced in the near future. The official did not give specific dates or a list of restrictions.
The governor paid special attention to the issue of gambling establishments. Thus, Sisolak urged the citizens of Nevada to stay at home as much as possible and not to visit casinos in order to reduce the incidence of disease in the state.
Meanwhile, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy spoke out against closing gambling establishments in Atlantic City, saying there is no evidence that such facilities contribute to the spread of the virus.
The functionary stated, “Our casinos use all personal protective equipment, separators, temperature checks. Therefore, there is no evidence that gambling establishments are responsible for a significant increase in the disease.”
Recall that MGM Resorts’ losses totaled nearly $500 million.
