The South Australian government imposed state-wide limits in response to a new cluster of coronavirus cases in Adelaide.

In a statement to the stock exchange, the entertainment and gaming operator said SkyCity Adelaide would shut at midnight and would remain closed until 24 November.

The new restrictions have dealt a blow to the company’s plans to open its new $AU330 million development of SkyCity Adelaide this month.

It said the opening would be delayed, but no new date was given.

“SkyCity’s New Zealand properties (in Auckland, Hamilton and Queenstown) are unaffected by these latest restrictions in South Australia and remain open at Alert Level 1 in New Zealand.”

Earlier this week, three of Sky City’s top executives announced they were either resigning or stepping down.
