Indian Head Casino opens Thursday
The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, Oregon, announced today that Indian Head Casino will reopen at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 18.
"We are very excited to open, and with the amount of phone calls we receive on a daily basis from our guests, we know they are looking forward to our opening, too," said Belinda Chavez, director of marketing for Indian Head Gaming. "We are committed to following the CDC's guidelines, and we have implemented safety and sanitation measures in addition to limiting our occupancy to 250 total guests," said Chavez.
The casino will implement various safety features in light of the coronavirus. The casino will open with new operating hours of 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. All guests will be required to enter the casino through the doors on the east side of the building, which is the entrance to Cottonwood restaurant. Face masks will be required for all guests and employees as well as a touchless temperature check before entering the building.
Once on the casino floor, guests will notice a few small changes: At least initially, the entire property at Indian Head Casino will be nonsmoking. Plexiglass shields and social distancing markers have been installed in high traffic areas such as the Players Club, cashier booths and the check-out counter at the Tule Grill. In addition to new cleaning procedures, the casino will provide multiple hand sanitizing stations on the casino floor. The slot machines will be open and ready for play from the moment we open our doors. Table games, however, will open on a later date.
All restaurants at Indian Head Casino will be open for takeout, and the Cottonwood restaurant will offer curbside delivery.
Indian Head Casino voluntarily closed March 18 in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic and continued to stay closed for nearly three months.
