Macau casino lockdown extended by 5 days
The Macau Game Inspection and Coordination Agency (DICJ) announced that it has extended the mandatory closure of casinos in the island territory for another five days until midnight on July 23.
DICJ shut down Casino Lisboa on July 5 after COVID-19 outbreak among employees. Then, in just a few days, the number of COVID-19 confirmed cases has steadily increased across Macau, and authorities have decided to close all casinos.
The first lockdown was scheduled to end today, Monday, July 18, according to the DICJ. But despite the rapid decline in COVID-19 cases over the past few days, the government has decided to extend the lockdown for another five days.
The extended lockdown must be approved by Horat Sen CEO, but there are no signs of further extension. 릴게임
