Macau authorities on February 4 announced the temporary closure of all casinos after the Chinese coronavirus fell ill in the city. Now operators such as Sands China, Wynn Macau, SJM Holdings, Mgm China, Galaxy Entertainment and Melco Resorts, have 30 days to return to a full-fledged business.
Due to the concerns associated with the spread of Chinese coronavirus, from February 4, all gambling places were closed in Macau for 15 days. Now the Government of Macau allowed a casino to resume work on Thursday, February 20.
Previously, Macau authorities announced a temporary closure of 41 casinos of the city after officials reported that Macau had 10 confirmed cases of COVID-19, where in 2018 the income from playgrounds was more than 37 billion dollars. Now officials reported that since February 4, there were no new cases of infection with the virus in the city.
Casino operators including Sands China, Wynn Macau, SJM Holdings, Mgm China, Galaxy Entertainment and Melco Resorts, have 30 days to return to full business. While the casino received the green light to open their doors, business is likely to be limited due to strict control in the city to enter tourists and suspend ferry messages from Hong Kong.
