Closures of casinos are becoming common during the pandemic that never ends. The provincial government has requested the closure of Casino New Brunswick.
The Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, the biggest operator in Canada, declared that once again the casino can no longer admit guests. No re-opening date has been set for the near future.
It has been a seesaw of closing and opening. Last March, Casino New Brunswick suspended all operations with the onset of the first lockdown. On September 28th, the casino was given the green light to open with mandatory health measures. Then on October 9, the casino closed its doors again only to reopen on October 23rd.
Elsewhere, Great Canadian Gaming’s brick-and-mortar casino, the Nova Scotia Halifax Casino, opened on October 5th, with a 20% guest capacity and limited table games. The food and drinks amenities were available on November 12th, but the casino was closed on November 26th.
Facing the same turmoil, Nova Scotia Sydney casino reopened on October 5th, with a guest capacity of 20%. Sadly, table games and food and beverage consumption was suspended yet the casino remains operational, following mandatory health measures.
