Indiana’s licensed gaming and racing operations will be shut down for at least 14 days, according to the state’s Gaming Commission.
Saturday the commission made the announcement, which goes into effect at 6 a.m. Monday in the interest of public health.
The announcement follows a statement from Governor Eric Holcomb on Thursday where he asked that non-essential gatherings stay limited to no more than 250 people. It also follows a number of cancellations of regional, statewide and national sporting events amid concerns of the spread of coronavirus, and the discovery of additional cases in the state.
The Indiana Gaming and Horse Racing commissions will continue to monitor the situation.
