Pennsylvania—The Rivers Casino and Meadows Racetrack and Casino have both resumed operations after being forced into temporary closure due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Last week Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf announced for some counties in the state to move to the “green phase”, as certain restrictions regarding Covid-19 were to be relaxed in these areas.
34 out of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties have now moved to the green phase of the state’s reopening strategy. This includes areas where land-based casinos are located. Casinos in the said counties can reopen and operate at 50% capacity.
The Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh has started welcoming players again on June 9. Meadows in North Strabane Township, Washington, on the other hand, has reopened.
Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin in Farmington, Fayette County, is also scheduled to reopen and resume activities starting June 12.
