Loto-Québec announces an adjustment to the opening hours of its gaming establishments to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
“Loto-Quebec has decided to apply the additional measures announced by the government to all of its gaming establishments,” the state-owned company said in a press release on Monday.
Loto-Québec's four casinos and two gaming halls will now close at midnight for an indefinite period.
This schedule has been in effect since Monday at the Casino de Montréal and the Salon de jeux de Québec.
In addition, the sale of alcohol already limited to restaurants will cease at 11 p.m. from now on.
As for video lottery terminals, the new closing hours at midnight have been applied to them since July 10 throughout the Loto-Québec network.
“These temporary measures are necessary at the moment to ensure the safety of all,” explained Loto-Québec.
