Required COVID-19 Testing – August 5th, 7am – 12pm and 1pm -5pm
In an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, the Tribe has significantly stepped up their testing efforts in the last couple of weeks. This will mark the 3rd week in a row of testing at the Casino. In the previous 2 weeks two team members tested positive. Those individuals were asymptomatic and remain in self-quarantine along with anyone considered a close contact. We look forward to welcoming these team members back when they are cleared to return to work by health professionals. Additional testing on close contacts has not resulted in any positive tests. Tomorrow, we will do another round of testing on site from 7am-12pm, and 1pm – 5pm.
It is important to note the Tribe’s Public Health Officer remains confident in the safety and cleaning protocols at the Casino. However, she remains very concerned with the overall behavior of the general public and their efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Personally from what I have heard and seen, I am mainly concerned that an individual will contract COVID-19 outside of the Casino . This applies to guests and team members. Please do your part to stop the spread. Wear your mask, wash your hands, and social distance when possible whether you are at work or home.
