– New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced on Tuesday that indoor dining as well as smoking and drinking within casinos would be restricted for the time being. In reaction to the measures, the highest-grossing casino in Atlantic City, the Borgata, has decided to remain closed until those services can be resumed.
UPDATE: INDOOR DINING WILL NO LONGER RESUME ON THURSDAY.
We had planned to loosen restrictions this week. However, after #COVID19 spikes in other states driven by, in part, the return of indoor dining, we have decided to postpone indoor dining indefinitely.
