“(Warm Springs, OR) The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, Oregon announced Tuesday that Indian Head Casino will reopen at
10am on Thursday June 11.
“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.
A few things you should keep in mind before you head over to Indian Head Casino: The casino will open with new operating hours
of 10 AM to 2 AM. All guests will be required to enter the casino thru the doors on the East side of the building, which is the
entrance to Cottonwood restaurant. Facemasks will be required for all guests and employees as well as a touchless temperature
check before entering the building.
Once you are on the casino floor you will notice a few small changes: At least initially, the entire property at Indian Head Casino will
be Non-Smoking. 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, we 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 take-out and the
Cottonwood restaurant will offer curbside delivery.
Indian Head Casino voluntarily closed on March 18th in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic and continued to stay closed for nearly
three months.”
