Could this be the week that casino workers have been waiting for?
Governor Andrew Cuomo is expected to make an announcement at some point this week on when or if they will be allowed to reopen.
Many casinos like del Lago Resort & Casino in Seneca County have been shut down since mid-March.
Workers and local officials were critical of the Governor last week for his lack of guidance on the commercial gaming facilities. Native American operated casinos, like Turning Stone, have been running since mid-June with no reported spike in cases despite lax rules on those grounds.
Cuomo has said before that he’s worried about a lack of social distancing and air ventilation.
It’s unclear when this week the announcement could be made.
