ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy says Atlantic City’s casinos will be able to reopen July 2 at 25% capacity and everyone inside the building wearing masks.

In a Twitter post Monday, the Democratic governor also said indoor dining can resume on that date, with restaurants also operating at 25% capacity.

Racetracks can also reopen July 2.

The city’s nine casinos have been waiting for a reopening date for weeks, even as casinos in other states reopened.

The governor says additional safety and health guidelines will be released in the coming days for casinos and restaurants.
