Valley Forge Casino in Pennsylvania Temporarily Closes

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

The Valley Forge Casino Resort in Pennsylvania will be temporarily closing in order to help stop the spread of coronavirus after Governor Tom Wolf ordered the closure of areas that see large assemblies of people.

The casino said that no cases of coronavirus have been recorded at the property and that this move is precautionary. The hotel closed at 6am on Friday morning and will remain shuttered until March 27th. This closure falls in line with the orders from the Governor, who also ordered all entertainment venues, schools, and community centers in Montgomery County to close to prevent the spread of the virus.

Valley Forge was purchased by Boyd Gaming last year for a selling price of $280.5 million. There are 1,000 employees at the casino and 442 hotel rooms on the property.

In a statement, Boyd Gaming wrote: "The safety and well-being of our team members and customers is our utmost priority. The company has been advising all team members who are experiencing flu-like symptoms to go home immediately and contact their health care professional."

Man, it's getting crazy out there. We have a run on the grocery stores hitting now. They just canceled school through April 5th as well. Looks like we're going to have a few weeks of inconvenience in Michigan... I feel for those in areas that have it heavily.
