COVID-19: Red Level AlertCertain Loto-Québec activities temporarily suspended, including those at the Casino de Charlevoix

Montréal, October 13, 2020 — Following the Québec Premier’s press conference on October 13, and in keeping with its commitment to abide by the government-issued COVID-19 restrictions, Loto-Québec will be temporarily suspending several of its activities in the Montérégie, Centre-du-Québec and Capitale-Nationale regions (Charlevoix included). 

 

Starting this Friday, 12:01 a.m. (in the night of Thursday to Friday), Loto-Québec will be:

  • Closing the Casino de Charlevoix (the establishment has been operating four days a week, i.e. every Thursday to Sunday, since July)

 

  • Closing its video lottery terminals (VLTs) in the Montérégie, Centre-du-Québec and Capitale-Nationale regions (Charlevoix included) 

 

  • Suspending Kinzo even in regions that are not on red alert (at present only one Kinzo hall is located outside of a red zone)

 

A reminder that the Casino de Montréal, Casino du Lac-Leamy, Salon de jeux de Québec, Salon de jeux de Trois-Rivières, Hilton Lac-Leamy Hotel, and VLTs in Greater Montréal, Chaudière-Appalaches, Capitale-Nationale, Mauricie, City of Gatineau and regional county municipality of Collines-de-l’Outaouais are all temporarily closed. Furthermore, Loto-Québec will be suspending network bingo, even in halls that have remained open.

 

Lottery sales, which are not impacted by these new COVID-19 restrictions, will continue at all retail outlets. The Casino de Mont-Tremblant remains open, and VLTs will remain operational in all the other Québec regions.

 

These temporary measures are necessary to protect everyone’s health and safety at the present time. Loto-Québec urges the public to exercise caution, particularly by limiting their travel between regions and following public health guidelines.
