Great Canadian Gaming Corporation has announced that both Shorelines Casino Peterborough and Shorelines Slots at Kawartha Downs will be closing as of 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday (December 23), in advance of the provincial lockdown.
Also closing at the same time are Great Canadian Gaming at Shorelines Casino Thousand Islands and Shorelines Casino Belleville.
The closures follows the Ontario provincial government’s announcement on Monday (December 21) that all non-essential businesses across the province, such as casinos, will be required to close as of 12:01 a.m. on Boxing Day (December 26).
The four locations had re-opened on September 28 with a limited capacity of 50 people and no table games or food and beverage amenities.
The company’s other Ontario locations (Casino Woodbine, Elements Casino Mohawk, Elements Casino Flamboro, Casino Ajax, Great Blue Heron Casino, and Elements Casino Grand River) were previously closed this fall as a result of their respective health units moving into more restrictive public health measures.
Details regarding the reopening of the company’s Ontario properties will be announced at a later date.
