In all of the jurisdictions where we operate, the provincial government and Public Health Officers (PHOs) have implemented proof of vaccination requirements for all guests of our casinos, restaurants and some amenities. The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) notes that vaccination is one of the most effective ways to help protect ourselves, our families and communities against COVID-19. At Gateway, we are taking the step to implement an Employee COVID-19 Vaccination Policy. This will best ensure we are fulfilling our requirement to provide a safe and healthy environment for our employees and guests. Beginning November 8, 2021, all employees at Gateway are required to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or begin completing weekly rapid testing and adhering to mandatory mask requirements, regardless of the public health direction of mask mandate.
