MACAU - With no new cases of Covid-19 coronavirus reported since Feb. 4, and just 10 confirmed cases in total, Macau’s casinos will be permitted to reopen on Thursday Feb. 20 after a compulsory 15-day shutdown.

All those entering the casinos will be required to wear a mask and have a temperature check.

Pubs and karaoke bars will continue to be closed.

Non-resident workers coming back from mainland China will need a health certificate following 14-days medical surveillance at specific locations in Zhuhai before they will be allowed to re-enter Macau.

A 14-day quarantine will be required also for Macau residents, non-resident workers and tourists crossing over from mainland China.

Government services will be returning this week.
