More than 250 covid-19

More than 250 covid-19 cases over the last several months with the spike in October self-reported by the Atlantic City casinos.

Since reopening in early July, there have been 251 reported positive cases of the novel coronavirus among those who work at a casino, with more than 60% of those cases occurring in October.

According to data obtained through an Open Public Records Act request, 172 COVID-19 cases from employees who work directly for a casino hotel — including executives, housekeepers, bell hops, security personnel, kitchen workers, administrative staff, slot attendants and dealers — have been reported to state gaming regulators. Another 79 cases were reported from those who work at the casinos’ various restaurants and bars.

The numbers reflect self-reported cases by Atlantic City casino operators to the state Division of Gaming Enforcement between July 2 and Oct. 26.

In response to the big spike Gov. Phil Murphy will announce Monday that New Jersey bars and restaurants will soon need to close all indoor service by 10 p.m. and all indoor interstate organized sports up to the high school level will soon be off-limits under new restrictions.
