New provincial restrictions designed to slow the spread of COVID-19 will one again affect Caesars Windsor.

The gambling and entertainment complex announced Monday evening that it will temporarily close between this Wednesday, and Wednesday, January 26, as Ontario moves into a modified Stage Two of reopening to curb the spread of the contagious Omicron variant.

“The health and safety of our employees and guests remain a priority, and we look forward to welcoming you back at a time when it is safe for our community,” said Caesars Windsor President Kevin Laforet in a media release.

Guests registered in the hotel Monday night will be allowed to stay the night but must check out by noon Tuesday. The gaming floor will close at midnight Tuesday.

Hotel guests will have any reservation cancelled without financial penalty and will be notified by email or telephone. Future reservations will not be accepted until the complex reopens.

At the complex’s Colosseum venue, the Live to Rock show on January 20 will be rescheduled until sometime this summer. The Alice Cooper concert on January 27 is cancelled.

For Live to Rock ticket holders, information will be forthcoming on any rescheduled performance. All Colosseum shows scheduled for February are on as scheduled until further notice. Tickets redeemed through the Caesars Rewards program will still be good on any rescheduled date.

Up-to-date information on any COVID-19-related restrictions at Caesars Windsor can be foundĀ on its official website.
