According to Fantini’s daily report, properties across the US are still being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic to enough of a degree for operations to temporarily halt.

In Miami, Churchill Downs’ Calder Casino, Hialeah Park, Casino Miami and Magic City have reclosed.

Gila River Indian Community also closed its three Phoenix area casinos for the second time, despite reopening them again.

Meanwhile, in Michigan, two employees of Legends Diner in Soaring Eagle Casino have tested positive for COVID-19, while Rush Street’s Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh has been ordered to close for a week following an employee testing positive.

Elsewhere, Mississippi now requires all casino guests to wear a facemask; while there are worries casinos will be forced to close in Nevada, following governor Steve Sisolak’s warning that all businesses must enforce protocols on mandatory face coverings.
