The Meadowlands Racetrack will close at 6 pm today, Tuesday, Sept. 29. The racetrack continues to take an aggressive stance against the spread of COVID-19.
Over the past several days the medical team has identified a few individuals that tested positive for COVID-19 that they acquired either in the workplace or at home. Contact tracing is ongoing.
Out of an abundance of caution, the entire facility will be shut down for top to bottom sanitization. The Meadowlands Racetrack is committed to providing a safe and healthy grandstand for all employees, patrons and fans.
The plan is to re-open to fans at 10 am on Saturday, Oct. 3.
Live harness racing will take place as scheduled on Friday, Oct. 2, without spectators. Horsemen are reminded to have the COVID questionnaire completed when arriving at the stable gate for their temperature check. Face coverings are required at all times while in the paddock.
Fans are encouraged to wager online by visiting their favorite online OTW. Must be 18+ to wager.
Re-opening details will be posted at PlayMeadowlands.com. Winners Bayonne OTW remains open for simulcasting. (Meadowlands)
