The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and Mohegan Tribe have reopened casinos in Connecticut, despite opposition from governor Ned Lamont.
Lamont believes this risk of coronavirus spreading during large gatherings is too high in the Nutmeg State, especially for people over the age of 65.
Due to tribal sovereignty, however, local authorities have been unable to prevent casinos in Connecticut reopening.
Instead, two large signs have been put up down state roads leading to Foxwoods Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun.
The signs read “Avoid large crowds” and “Don’t gamble with COVID.”
Lamont said: “People over the age of 65 should not be in large, congregate settings. We think that’s dangerous, even now.
“So we tried to put some good, strong advice in place as people are on their way to taking a gamble.”
