A press release from the Wisconsin-based company today read: "Due to the impacts of the Covid-19 Virus, in order to better protect our people, the community, and our business, Bay Tek Entertainment will be temporarily closing our doors on March 23, through to at least April 20. We feel this is the most responsible decision we can make at this time to serve our people, this industry, and our community.

“For over 44 years, Bay Tek Entertainment has served the beloved amusement industry, and we acknowledge the almost instant pains that our industry customers, competitors, suppliers, partners and friends are feeling. The Bay Tek family will take this time to focus on our loved ones, the health of our people and of our business in order to come back when we’re ready to start playing again. “Until then, please stay healthy, stay focused, take time to find the light, and we’ll be here for you when your doors reopen.

“We will have limited capacity to return calls and emails over this time, so we do ask for your patience, but for urgent matters and needs, please do contact us at [email protected].”
