The Borgata Casino in Atlantic City to Re-Open July 26th
The latest casino to announce its re-opening in Atlantic City is the Borgata. Officials from the Borgata this week unveiled plans to re-open the popular travel destination on Sunday, July 26th.
According to a recent report in the Atlantic City Press, the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa will reopen at 10 a.m. July 26, after hosting invited guests for several days.
Borgata officials said they expect to bring back about 40% of its employees for the first phase of the casino reopening.
The Borgata will follow New Jersey mandates concerning masks, 25% gaming floor capacity, and social distancing at slot machines and table games at the Atlantic City hotel-casino. New Jersey also has prohibited smoking, eating, or drinking on the casino floor.
According to the report, The Water Club, an adjoining "non-gaming" hotel, will not reopen when the Borgata does later this month.
The self-parking garage at the Borgata will be open, but the surface parking lot and valet will be closed until further notice.
In addition, guests will be able to order room service or takeout from multiple restaurants, including the Old Homestead Steak House, Noodles of the World and Bread + Butter.
Have you been to Atlantic City since the casinos have begun re-opening? If so has your experience been the same as before? or is it a different feel at the state's gaming halls? We would love to hear your comments and see if people are in fact ready to hit AC once again or maybe waiting a bit longer before returning.
