TORONTO, April 27, 2021 /CNW/ - Further to the announcement today from the Nova Scotia provincial government that certain businesses in the province, such as casinos, will 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") will be suspending operations at Casino Nova Scotia - Sydney as of Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. AST.

"Our properties in Nova Scotia had been operating safely and restoring services as part of the phased reopening in the province, affording us the opportunity to bring back many of our team members and offer a safe and enjoyable environment for our guests. With the increased presence of COVID-19 in many areas of Canada in recent weeks, we feel the various closures undertaken by provincial governments and health authorities are important measures at this time," stated Terrance Doyle, Great Canadian's Interim Chief Executive Officer. "Although this continues to be a difficult time for our team members across the country, we are confident that as mass vaccination programs continue, the wider reopening of the economy including casinos, is something we can all look forward to soon," concluded Doyle.
