Melco Resorts’ Cyprus casinos will remain closed until at least mid-July, though some businesses on the Mediterranean island have been allowed to reopen.

The move is part of Cyprus president Nicos Anastasiades’ plans for a phased reopening of the island, which first allows construction projects to resume as well as retail stores not located inside shopping malls.

Hotels, shopping malls and airports are scheduled to reopen on June 9. However, casinos will not be allowed to reopen until July 14.
