Last fall, as the roller-coaster of case counts again subsided, Gateway reopened its casinos in October of 2020, but Rama remained closed. Last summer, as the number of cases subsided, the province allowed bingo halls and casinos to reopen, but the 50-person limit at the time was not deemed sufficient to reopen a large space like Casino Rama. All casinos were ordered shuttered by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission on March 16, 2020 due to the pandemic. Robert Mitchell, director of communications and public affairs for Gateway Casinos, which operates Casino Rama and several other casinos, says staff are currently being recalled to work. After being shut down on Jan. 3 by the Ontario government amid the rise of the Omicron variant, Casino Rama is reopening Monday morning at 50 per cent capacity.
