Nova Scotia Gaming Corporation recently made it clear that the casino operator now has the right to recommence its regular work in Halifax and Sydney. All health protection measures are going to be introduced on the premises of the two casino locations.

Ever since mid-March, various brick-and-mortar casino locations across Canada have been closed for business. Patrons were recommended to stay at home and practice physical distancing. All gaming enthusiasts had the chance to explore the online gaming space and possibly discover their new passion in the comfort of their homes. The closure of casino venues was a temporary measure.

Reopening Comes Soon

Great Canadian Gaming was among the first casinos to implement the measure and introduce a lockdown on all of its land-based facilities across the Canadian provinces. Exactly three months later, the time for a change has come, as more and more locations begin a gradual reopening of their facilities.

Nova Scotia Gaming Corporation recently made it clear that in-person gaming in the region would be an appropriate move. Great Canadian Gaming Corporation oversees two locations in the area.

The Sydney location comes with a total of 257 slot machines and all of them are going to be subjected to regular disinfection, as all players touch them on a frequent basis. The venue is also known for the extensive poker offerings it has up for grabs, meaning that the gaming tables would also have to be regularly cleaned. The location is yet to reveal the particular changes that have been introduced to the gaming equipment layout.

All Safety Measures Implemented

Casino Nova Scotia Halifax features a total of 650 slot machines electrifying the crowd frequenting the gaming hotspot. The casino operator acquired it in the fall of 2005. Ever since then, Great Canadian Gaming Corporation has been overseeing and perfecting the gaming location. The casino operator has already worked on an extensive plan that will oversee the entire process of reopening.

This includes the various measures providing well-rounded protection to all individuals entering the casino venues. The special plan for action Great Canadian Gaming Corporation devised works in accordance with the existing regulations in Nova Scotia, along with the regularly updated provincial public health guidelines. The approval has been given, but for the time being no reopening date has been unveiled by the casino operator.

Nova Scotia Gaming Corporation is working closely with the leader in order to determine the most appropriate time for this move. Alberta Casinos have also commenced their gradual reopening process, as the businesses need gaming revenue in order to stay afloat. This awakening is part of the business reopening plan all of the provinces and territories have implemented.
