The Rideau Carleton Casino Reopens After Long Downtime

The Rideau Carleton Casino

The Canadian capital and the entire state of Ontario, along with it, switched to Step 3 of the Roadmap to Reopen plan back in July, but the long-awaited return of the gaming industry was somewhat delayed. Only in the middle of August, the Rideau Carleton Casino was finally able to open its doors to visitors, but even then, not all of the options that this institution could offer customers are available. Now you can entertain yourself only with slot machines; electronic board games are also available. Some of the catering establishments located here have also opened – casino guests will be able to eat.

Other restrictions do not yet allow us to forget about the coronavirus as a nightmare. In particular, enclosed space cannot be more than half full. Employees and guests of the casino in the building are required to wear masks and maintain a safe distance. A plexiglass barrier is set up between the board game players and the croupier (when this entertainment becomes available live). At the moment, board games in live mode, not electronic performance, are still unavailable.

The Rideau Carleton Casino, which will soon change its signage to Hard Rock Ottawa, has pledged its full commitment to safety during the coronavirus era. Antiseptic will be everywhere here, especially where a person, first of all, thinks about hygiene – at entrances, near bars and ATMs, and so on. Cleaning will be made much more frequent than before the lockdown, and they will wipe as thoroughly as possible the places with which hands often come into contact – door handles, bar tables, counters, and levers of slot machines.

The public is left to wait for the introduction of further indulgences, and rejoice that the casino opened even so.
