reat Canadian Gaming Corporation announced Thursday that Casino New Brunswick will be reopening at 10 a.m. AST on Friday, as a result of the New Brunswick provincial government's announcement allowing the reopening of certain businesses.
The New Brunswick provincial government mandated that certain businesses, such as casinos, temporarily suspend operations on October 9 as part of the effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
"Great Canadian remains committed to providing a safe environment for both its guests and team members, and as such, Casino New Brunswick will be reopening with the significant and comprehensive health and safety protocols it introduced as part of its first reopening on September 28, 2020," the company said in a press release Thursday.
Last month, the new operational plans and protocols included reduced facility guest capacity and slot machines, and the suspension of most amenities in an effort to follow physical distancing requirements issued by Public Health. Table games were not available, and the hotel remained closed.
