If you're looking for things to do to occupy your time or get your mind off the state of the world, you have options. Cineplex is open despite concerns about COVID-19 across Canada and that means there's still something to do even during all the closures and cancellations. Measures are being taken to make sure theatres are safe for movie-goers and employees.

In a letter to guests, Cineplex president and CEO Ellis Jacob said that theatres across the country would still be open amid growing concerns about the pandemic and other closures.

"I want to assure our guests that we are taking all appropriate measures to ensure our venues are safe and that we have existing plans and training protocols in place to ensure they stay that way," he said.

With health and safety being a top priority, Cineplex is ramping up cleaning efforts so that theatres can still operate and people can still come in to see a movie.

At all locations, enhanced cleaning protocols are being introduced and industrial-grade and food-service approved cleaning products are being used.

There is also a focus on high traffic and high contact areas to keep guests and employees safe.

Jacob also said that giving people safe and comfortable entertainment experiences is something Cineplex remains committed to.

So if you don't want to stay cooped up all the time, there is still something to do.

There are so many movies to see if you need a break from the world.

If you're heading out with young ones you could check out Onward or Frozen II.

For the grown-ups, there's The Invisible Man, Emma, The Photograph, Harley Quinn: Birds Of Prey and way more to choose from.

You could even head to a VIP theatre a sit back in a comfy chair with a cocktail and some great food.

However, if you're feeling sick, Cineplex is asking you to stay home and not visit a theatre so that they "can ensure a safe and comfortable experience for everyone."

"We continue to monitor this situation closely and will provide ongoing updates as needed," Jacob said.

There will also be an increase in communications and reminders to movie-goers about health and safety measures being taken.

Cineplex is allowing employees to stay home if they need to and not be financially penalized because of that.
