Gambling operator Loto-Québec has closed two of its land-based venues on October 1 due to an increase in the number of coronavirus cases.
The two venues are Casino de Montréal and the Salon de jeux de Québec. They will remain closed until October 28.
Network bingo, Kinzo, and video lottery machines (VLTs) in the metropolitan zones of Montreal, Quebec City, and the Chaudière-Appalaches region will be inoperative for the same period. Lottery ticket sales will continue.
Kinzo and VLTs are able to stay in operation in other areas, and network bingo is permitted to run during evening hours.
The government in Quebec first implemented widespread closures of gambling facilities in March at the height of the pandemic. Retail betting facilities were given the green light to reopen in May, but some have remained closed.
