On Tuesday, 27th April 2021, the Nova Scotia government announced that certain businesses that include casinos would have to close to slow the spread of COVID-19. Great Canadian Gaming Corporation (TSX: GC) also confirmed that all of its casino operations in Nova Scotia-Sydney would be suspended starting on 27th April at 11:59 p.m. AST.
Terrance Doyle, the Great Canadian Interim Chief Executive Officer also cited the increased cases of COVID-19 in the province as the reason for the closure. However, he noted that the mass vaccination program would enable the reopening of the economy.
“Our properties in Nova Scotia had been operating safely and restoring services as part of the phased reopening in the province, allowing us to bring back many of our team members and offer a safe and enjoyable environment for our guests. With the increased presence of COVID-19 in any area of Canada in recent weeks, we feel the various closures undertaken by the provincial government and health authorities are important measures at this time.”
Most of the Great Gaming Corporation (GGC) casinos have been shut down except for Casino New Brunswick that is open but with restrictions. GGC was founded in 1982 in Ontario. It currently operates 26 gaming, entertainment, and hospitality facilities in Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and British Columbia.
GGC is a company that is committed to the welfare of the people, business, and community. GGC support 1, 400 charitable and non-profit organizations across Canada. Part of the revenue they generate is used to support programs that include healthcare, education among others.
