B.C. to shut down all casinos to slow spread of COVID-19

Casinos from Vancouver to Victoria will be shut

All casinos in B.C. are closing to help curb the spread of COVID-19, provincial health officials announced Monday.

Health Minister Adrian Dix said he was ordering all casinos to close, a move that follows an earlier closure of 10 casinos by the Great Canadian Gaming Corp.

More to come.
