It's fun and if you don't get into a lot of trouble, you'll have a good time even if you lose. So, because I enjoy gambling, we decided to take a trip abroad to the great city of Windsor, ON to go to the new Caesars casino (formerly Casino Windsor).
Those in charge of the region’s largest tourist attraction, Caesars Windsor, are eagerly awaiting the day they can do business again — but it will have to wait.
“We are ready to open,” said Kevin Laforet, president of Caesars Windsor, in a letter to Windsor city council on Tuesday.
“We have a robust health and safety plan that has been reviewed by an epidemiologist and shared with our stakeholders and regulator.”
Laforet made the comments while expressing support for Windsor moving into Stage 2 of the province’s re-opening plan under COVID-19 conditions.
However, casinos aren’t included in Stage 2 — something which Laforet acknowledged.
“The health and safety of our community is, of course, our collective primary concern. We have followed the provincial and regional health guidelines for over 100 days,” Laforet told council.
“It is also important for the company to re-open in a responsible fashion. As the president of one the city’s largest employers and the largest tourism driver, I feel compelled to share my frustration.”

The province has been taking a regional approach to re-opening. As Windsor was held back in Stage 1 longer than any other part of the province, Laforet noted that “it is entirely possible that casinos in our competitive radius will be allowed to open before (Caesars Windsor).”
Across the border, as of Friday, Detroit casinos are still not allowed to have customers. But there has been talk by Michigan’s governor of possibly entering the next phase of re-opening in the first week of July — casinos included.
Detroit media report that MGM Grand Detroit Casino has its protocols in place and only needs the green light from the state.
Among the measures: All employees and visitors will have their temperatures taken upon entry; Masks are required by all while inside; New hand- washing and sanitizing stations have been set up at entrances and on the gaming floor; New plexiglass barriers have been installed; and a quantity of chairs have been removed to encourage physical distancing.
The MGM Grand’s climate control system will circulate new air 14 times within every 60 minutes, and staff have been tasked to clean surfaces regularly.
Laforet told council he had not expected Detroit to be this far ahead in its re-opening plan. “The border closure may make this a moot point, but it is just another challenge for (Caesars Windsor).”© Nick Brancaccio A logo at Caesars Windsor casino resort on May 5, 2020.
Details of Caesars Windsor’s own new protocols have not been disclosed, but Laforet wrote that the casino resort is willing to assist however possible in moving things along.
He applauded Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens for taking “a leadership role” in convincing the government to “wrestle this issue to the ground before it causes more damage to our regional economy.”
Meanwhile, there’s still no formal word from the province when Stage 3 will happen.
Last week, representatives of the Canadian Gaming Association spoke with the Ontario legislature’s Finance and Economic Affairs Committee, announcing the preparedness of the industry to re-open.

Steps meant to mitigate risk include operating at 50 per cent capacity, eliminating playing spots at table games like blackjack and poker, and setting up slot machines to maximize distance between them.
Further south of the border, the Caesars Entertainment location in Atlantic City, New Jersey, is set to open its doors on July 3, with all of its dining options, bars, and lounges in operation.
