Cyprus Casinos (C2) has announced its casinos will be able to reopen its doors on May 17, after six months of forced closure during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The C2 Limassol casino will open from 7am to 11:30pm local time and Ayia Napa and Paphos will close the same time but open later at 10:30am.
The Nicosia casino will open from 3pm to 11:30pm on weekdays and 7am to 11:30pm on weekends. However, due to Ministry of Health guidelines, the Columbia Bistro in Limassol will open from June 1.
Each venue will have to meet strict guidelines set out by the Greek Minister of Health, but the company is confident it will meet requirements.
To ensure the safety of customers, the operator has set in place several health and hygiene rules across its venues, such as temperature checks, the use of face masks, and hand sanitisers and social distancing.
The company says it will be carrying out regular disinfection and sanitisation procedures on a daily and weekly basis.
Cyprus Casinos Property General Manager, Grant Johnson, said: “We are delighted to welcome guests back to C2.
"We are ready and committed to providing them with the highest standards of entertainment offered by C2 in a safe and pleasant environment. The health and safety of our guests and colleagues is our number one priority. We have therefore implemented a comprehensive series of stringent hygiene measures.
“We strongly believe the reopening of C2 will provide a boost to Cyprus’ road to recovery and contribute significantly towards enhancing the tourism industry, as well as the overall local economy”.
