The poker room at The Playground will be opening its doors soon, but not until Friday, June 4, for EGD players only!
The Kahnawake Covid-19 Task Force has given the okay for Playground to open up in Phase 2 of their reopening process, but elsewhere around Quebec, casinos are not quite ready yet.
Baby Steps for Playground
The facility reopening is only one step in a phased plan. They have been working on the first thing for months, and it’s finally ready!
Management at Playground is anxious to get back in action after a rough 15 months. They’ve been through so many businesses that they can take what comes their way, which has made management’s job easier than it would otherwise be.
- March 13, 2020: Complete government-mandated closure
- September 4, 2020: Limited reopening for EGD play only
- October 4, 2020: Complete government-mandated closure again
The data used so far to track the spread of Covid-19 cases is insufficient. It only takes into account illnesses and hospitalizations, but no deaths or how many people were infected at any given time before they got sicker than usual in September last year when this virus hit again with another wave after being closed down for months during summer vacation season which led officials thinking it was over until something else came along barely two weeks later!
In a time when most companies are struggling to maintain their business or even survive, Playground has been able to stay afloat and grow. This success is because they operate based on First Nations tribal dictate for Kahnawake Mohawk Territory, which allows them freedom from restrictions imposed by outside forces such as government regulations and pandemic etiquette. The Covid-19 Task Force protects its citizens’ safety while ensuring everything goes back into normal operations.
Numbers have been down consistently, but the vaccination rate for people 16 and older in Kahnawake hit 74%. This is significantly higher than what it used to be before Quebec’s reopening plan started. Ahead of Commissioner Phillips’ announcement that he would begin this new endeavour with a kick-off event on May 15, we can expect more outreach efforts by police officers throughout Montreal suburbia and other communities across the province. The output tone should still maintain its professionalism while being friendly towards readers because they deserve updates, too!
On May 21, the number of people gathering outdoors increased to 12. Some activities resumed, and restaurants opened up with a 25% capacity for dining to accommodate this increase, while safety measures like masks remain on hand at all times, just as they have been since before Christmas Eve when things first got going in here huge way over two months ago now!
The second phase of vaccinations began on June 4, and the overall community vaccination rate has exceeded 75%. This means that restaurants are at 50% capacity for both modern shots; outdoor gatherings can accommodate 25 people (up from 10), churches may be attended by up to 50 percent more members than last year–and gym attendees will only number 12!
This report phase includes a category specifically for gaming establishments with limitations.
Playground Opens with Limits
Playground Poker Club is back open for business! To celebrate, we’re going to give you all the chance in hell to come to play your favourite game of poker. You’ll be able to use our new online platform and register free before it goes public on June 4, so make sure not to miss out this time because there are only 50 spots available per day (but they do say that popularity matters). Just click the below link or tap here now if interested + enter promo code “FREEROAD” at checkout.
Starting this week, the casino’s doors will be open daily from 9 am to 4 pm. The few hours of closure each morning are necessary for disinfecting and electrostatic cleaning before we welcome you back! During business hours (8:30 am-4 pm), our staff cleans every customer facing a wall in your favourite spotter or slots area twice per day; they also regularly sanitize high contact areas like door handles and machines throughout all four halls – including those pesky gaming devices that need regular attention too 😉 And make sure not miss out on some fun by checking out what else is going down here.
The Playground can only accommodate 125 guests at a time. It’s split into five zones, each one allowing 25 customers per section according to social distancing guidelines- meaning there are no interactive games on site yet! There is plenty more where that came from, though: three EGDs ( flavours ) stand out as being particularly popular so far; they’re scattered across different areas for your convenience without compromising accessibility in any way whatsoever.
To ensure a reserved space for patrons, Playground allows them to book up until three hours in advance.
When it comes to avoiding possible Covid infections, playground staff will ask every person – employees and guests alike- questions about health. They must wear masks to protect against diseases that might be present in the air (or on surfaces), as well as socially distance themselves from those who may have symptoms so they don’t spread any further infection than necessary! Staff members also receive stylus pens with which they can take notes during their shift while working in these protected areas; this way, if something needs attention right away, there won’t be a need for anyone outside earlier quite often enough because we all know how quick news travels among kids these days.
Customers at the Rail can order food and drinks from EGD, though they will be served in cups instead of dishware.
The new development is a major setback for those who enjoy going out and about in their cars, but it’s not all bad. For the time being, there are no valet services or smoking inside of this building, so you can still drive around feeling fresh!
Poker Players Want Poker
It looks like the beloved Playground of poker players will be opening its tables again soon! The website says, “Poker is coming back this summer,” so you can get your game on, and we’re excited about that.
With the World Cup of Cards coming up, players can get their fill online at partypoker. The Playground is partnering with this site again to offer an event set for June 11-30th that has yet to release details but could have between 22 total events and $1M worth in prizes!
Other Quebec Casinos Remain Closed
Kahnawake territory is the only place in Quebec where you can play at a casino.
The casinos in Montreal, Charlevoix and around lake Lemoyne have not announced any plans to reopen. The Loto Quebec website also remains silent on the matter, which means it is unclear when or if they will be open again for business as well!
The Quebec reopening plan makes no mention of gaming facilities. It seemed that May 28 should have allowed some sort-of reopenings due to the relaxation rules for large indoor venues, which can be split into zones; however, this did not happen as well, with the next possible date being June 25, when social distancing restrictions will ease up possibly allowing casinos’ partial reopenings again?
The next week will bring more information about when players may be able to return and play their favourite games at the casino.
I’m not sure if you’ve heard of it, but Playground Poker seems to be ahead of the curve when it comes to online gambling and Bitcoin.
