This story was published more than 3 years ago.

The Wolverine State's casino industry will be closed off again as Michigan's governor is implementing a new lockdown through at least December 8th.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced a new order that will close casinos, schools, restaurants, bars, stores, and other facilities throughout the state. Michigan is seeing covid cases surge, with nearly 9,100 cases reported one day last week.

The closures take effect on Wednesday, November 18th at 12:01 AM and will run through at least December 8th at 11:59 PM, although it is possible that there will extensions if cases do not come down.

Casinos throughout the state have suffered with a previous closure having seen them shuttered from March through August. The state is yet to implement online sportsbetting and casino games, meaning that the casinos will have no way of generating revenue during the closure.
