After being closed due to Covid-19, casinos in Winnipeg will reopen for vaccinated customers.
Canada.- Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Corp has confirmed that Winnipeg’s casinos will be allowed to reopen from July 28, but venues will only admit customers who have been fully vaccinated.
McPhillips Station and Club Regent casinos and the downtown Shark Club Gaming Centre will open next Wednesday and will require customers to show identification and proof of Covid-19 vaccination.
The same will not be a condition for staff, but the Crown corporation has recommended that they get vaccinated.
