With Ontario shifting to the red emergency tier, many local businesses have been allowed to reopen, including Gateway Casinos & Entertainment.

With Ontario moving down from the grey to the red tier on the pandemic emergency scale, many businesses that were shut for months due to the latest round of restrictions have now started to open their doors to the public again.  In response to the regulatory easings, Gateway Casinos announced its gambling venues’ operational status across Ontario.

Official Update

In its latest public release, Gateway Casinos announced that its facilities at Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury have reopened on 17 February and will be in service between 10 am and 2 am daily (9 am – 1 am in Sudbury).  Thunder Bay casino will also operate with a limited capacity of ten guests at a time.

Following the first batch of reopenings, the company’s casinos in southern Ontario also resumed their operations.  These include Gateway Casinos in Sarnia, Point Edward, Chatham, London, Woodstock, Clinton and Hanover.  All venues will work according to a reservation system previously used during last October’s reopenings, with a maximum capacity of 50 players, all of whom need to be My Club Rewards members.

Some Venues to Remain Closed

Gateway Casinos in Rama and Innisfil will remain closed, despite the new red tier status.  This is mainly due to the size of those resorts and the danger this might pose.

Shorelines Casinos Reopening

Ontario residents will also be glad to hear that Great Canadian Gaming has reopened three casinos after the lockdown lifting in Ontario. Shorelines Casinos in Peterborough, Thousand Islands, and at Kawartha have now reopened and are welcoming visitors again.
