This story was published more than 1 year ago.

Denmark's land casinos are going to remain closed through at least the end of the month due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, which is infecting thousands of people in the country per day.

The casinos and betting halls in the country were forced to close on December 17th and was slated to reopen on January 16th, but the order was extended through the end of the month at the very least.

Danish gaming regulator Spillemyndigheden said that casino managers will be responsible for maintaining the closures and will be updating on any extensions.

Covid has been spreading rapidly throughout Denmark (and the rest of the world, for that matter), with more than 33,000 cases reported yesterday and a 7-day average of 26,741 cases per day.
