The Borgata provided a copy of the memo to The Press of Atlantic City on Friday night.

Gov. Phil Murphy announced the indefinite closing of Atlantic City's nine casino hotels Monday. It was part of a series of steps directed by Murphy to mitigate the spread and risk of exposure to the new coronavirus.

On Sunday, a memo was distributed to Borgata employees informing them that three table games dealers had symptoms similar to those associated with COVID-19. The sick employees had not been on the property for at least three days at the time the memo was sent.

The state Department of Health has reported three positive cases in Atlantic County. Statewide, there have been 890 positive cases, resulting in 11 deaths.
