Quebec casinos reopen after closure due to rise in Covid-19 cases

Canada.- Quebec casinos have been allowed to reopen at 50 per cent capacity after being forced to close in December due to a rise in Covid-19 cases. All casinos, bars and restaurants in Quebec are allowed to serve food and alcohol until midnight and must close at 1am. Until now, the closing time for restaurants was midnight, with last service at 11pm.
Loto-Quebec announced the reopening earlier this month. Casinos in Montreal, Charlevoix and Lac-Leamy casinos and Quebec City and Trois-Rivières gaming rooms can now reopen. Loto-Québec is also reactivating video lottery terminals in bars. It plans to reopen the Casino de Mont-Tremblant on March 3.
Vaccination passports will be required and masks will be mandatory for employees and guests in the gaming areas. The Quebec government plans to lift Covid-19 restrictions by mid-March.
