TORONTO, April 23, 2021 /CNW/ - Further to the announcement yesterday from the Nova Scotia provincial government that certain businesses in the Halifax Regional Municipality, such as casinos, be required to close in the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, Great Canadian Gaming Corporation (TSX: GC) ("Great Canadian" or "the Company") suspended operations at Casino Nova Scotia - Halifax as of Thursday, April 22, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. AST.

The new restrictions do not apply to the Company's Casino Nova Scotia location in Sydney, Nova Scotia.

"As the mass vaccination programs in Canada continue to rollout and mature, we are eagerly looking forward to the easing of operating restrictions that will in turn allow our properties to reopen, and our teams to safely return to work whereby we can welcome our guests back for a unique brand of gaming entertainment," stated Terrance Doyle, Great Canadian's Interim Chief Executive Officer. "This has been a particularly difficult period for our thousands of team members across the country, but we are fully equipped and prepared to reopen in a safe and sustainable manner as conditions improve in our communities," concluded Doyle.
