The Albany (NY) Times Union has reported that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday morning that casinos in the state can reopen for business Sept. 9.
The casinos will be limited to 25 percent capacity, and table games will not be allowed unless physical barriers are installed between patrons at the table. Slot machines will be open, but players must be spaced at least six feet apart. Casinos are only allowed to open up if they install enhanced air-filtration systems, and masks and social distancing will be required as well, Cuomo said.
The State Gaming Commission will have jurisdiction over enforcing the health and safety guidelines, as well as State Police, the governor added.
