  • COVID-19 Update

    Written by Ben C / Published March 13th, 2020 / 0 Comments

    Dear guests, friends and followers,

    In light of growing concerns around COVID-19, Snakes & Lattes wanted to update you on the measures that are taken moving forward. While we will remain open for everyone to have fun and enjoy our game selection, the health, safety and well-being of our employees and guests will be our top priority. We are of course following what federal and Ontario public health authorities mandate and recommend.

    We want to assure our guests that we are implementing all recommended measures until further notice from the Public Health Agency of Canada. Our team is taking the following extremely seriously:

    • Extra sanitizing protocols for all surfaces and games.
    • Provide hand sanitizers and soap for all guests
    • Keep all employees updated with the Public Health Agency guidelines

    To protect yourself and others, we ask that anyone who is feeling unwell to refrain from visiting us so that together we can ensure a safe and comfortable experience for everyone.

    Again, we continue to monitor this situation closely and will provide ongoing updates as needed. We also encourage our guests to stay-up-to-date through Canada’s Public Health website.

    Thank you! We look forward to seeing you!
