Gateway’s Chatham Casino reopened Thursday.
The company announced it is reopening select properties in Ontario as part of the province’s Stage 3 guidelines.
The Cascades Casino reopened Thursday.
Under this framework, all Gateway properties will be restricted to the government-mandated maximum of 50 guests, and will only include slot machines. Table games will not be operational and non-gaming amenities will be very limited, Gateway officials said.
At opening and in the coming days, the casino will be operating with a reservation and invitation system for their customers only.
Due to the 50-customer capacity restrictions, properties will be open to invited My Club Rewards members only. Invited members will be notified by e-mail with details on how to make reservations.
“We are excited to be able to re-open our Ontario properties and welcome back some of our team members and customers. The health and well-being of our employees and guests is our top priority,” said Tony Santo, CEO at Gateway Casinos, in a media release. “We look forward to fully re-opening and welcoming more of our guests back in the future as capacities are increased and restrictions are lifted.”
Under the current environment, Gateway personnel are being “hyper vigilant in our cleaning protocols throughout our properties to prevent the spread of transmittable illnesses, including COVID-19,” officials said.
