(Niagara Falls, ON) July 13, 2021 – Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara are excited to announce that we will re-open in accordance with Provincial approvals at 10am on July 23 to the public. Invitation only events will be held on July 21 and 22. Both properties were shut down on March 16, 2020 in line with Provincial measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Since the shutdown, Niagara Casinos have been diligently preparing for this re-opening day with new and extensive health and safety measures. We have developed industry leading health and safety precautions to ensure the safety of our casino family of customers and associates. These measures have been reviewed by Niagara Region Public Health and Emergency Services and Infection Control and Prevention experts.
“We are looking forward to welcoming back our guests and associates, and are doing so with their health and safety as our top priority. We are incredibly grateful for the efforts and sacrifices everyone has made over the past sixteen months that have made it safe for us to re-open our doors”, says Richard Taylor, president, Niagara Casinos. “Together, by following implemented health and safety procedures we can get back to fun at Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara!”
When guests return to property, they can expect things to look a little bit different, but playing it safe has never been so fun. Customers can expect to see the following protocols in places when they arrive:
- Momentum cards will be required to enter the casino for contact tracing purposes;
- Physical distancing of at least two metres;
- The use of face coverings for customers and employees;
- Ensuring the availability of alcohol-based hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes for customers;
- Implementing where effective and possible, physical barriers such as clear plastic partitions;
- Enhanced cleaning and disinfection, particularly of high-touch surfaces, bathrooms and shared equipment;
- Signage and communication to reinforce all health and safety protocols;
- Employee health screening tools including temperature kiosks;
- COVID-19 health & safety training for all staff.
As we begin re-opening on July 23, we appreciate the cooperation of our guests and associates as we work to welcome guests back to property. Things will re-open in a phased approach with limited amenities available at the onset to ensure a safe environment for all.
Fallsview Casino Resort will be open 24/7 and offerings will include the hotel, gaming floor, slots, electronic table games, select dining establishments, the parking garage and Galleria shops and dining amenities. Limited table games will open at Fallsview on July 30. Casino Niagara will be re-opening from 10am to 2am daily with the last entry permitted at 1:15am. Offerings will include the gaming floor, slots, electronic table games, Perks Café, and the Chill Bar. At this time, table games and the poker room will not be available at Casino Niagara.
