SIGA announced Friday that it is planning to open each of its seven casinos on June 20.

During the initial phase of the opening, the casinos will start up in a reduced capacity. The casinos will open with physical distancing and a maximum capacity of 150 people.

According to a press release, casinos will offer select gaming and food service, and will enhance services as restrictions lift.

“We’re very excited to be able to welcome back our valued guests with our unique brand of First Nation’s hospitality to our casinos across the province,” Zane Hansen, SIGA president and CEO, said in a press release.

“The health and safety of our team members and guests, and that of the broader community, remain our top priority. We’ve worked very hard to ensure our facilities are safe for all to enjoy. I’m very excited for our team members to return to what they do best – providing the best entertainment experience possible for our guests, even if that experience now looks a bit different.”

SIGA said it will continue with its enhanced health and safety program it introduced last summer, with increased cleaning and sanitation. It will also continue with its contact tracing process. Guests must check in before entering the casino. All visitors will undergo a simple screening process.
