Thunder Bay – Have you missed sitting and testing your luck at the casino?
Gateway Casinos will reopen its Ontario casinos on Friday, July 16th as part of the Ontario Government’s Step 3 reopening plan. All casinos will be permitted to reopen at 50% capacity.
“We are excited to finally re-open casinos and community gaming centres across the province, and welcome back our employees and valued customers into a very safe environment for gaming and dining. As always, the health and safety of our employees and customers are paramount,” said Tony Santo, CEO at Gateway Casinos. “We look forward to a safe and steady restart and the return to full operations as soon as possible.”
“We operate in one of the most highly regulated business environments in the province with more rigorous oversight and controls than any other business in the hospitality sector,” said Santo. “At Gateway, we have developed extensive health and safety plans that have been independently reviewed by a health and safety subject matter expert.”
However, Casino Rama Resort will reopen on July 29.
