“In consideration of recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and requests from both federal and state governments, the Elk Valley Rancheria, California, a federally recognized Indian tribe, has decided to temporarily close the Elk Valley Casino beginning at midnight (11:59 p.m.) on Wednesday, March 18.
The timeframe for the closure is until March 31, pending re-evaluation at the end of the closure period. All scheduled promotions are cancelled.
The health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, guests, tribal members and the community are always our top priority.
We stand with federal, state, local and tribal officials nationwide in a unified response to this national public health emergency.
We will closely monitor updates about the coronavirus outbreak from the CDC, World Health Organization (WHO), as well as state and Del Norte County health officials. We will keep our loyal guests and team members updated about this temporary closure, including any change in the date of our reopening, through our website and social media channels.
During the closure, all team members will be paid and receive benefits. We deeply appreciate the understanding of our guests and team members during these unprecedented times.
We ask that you please stay and adhere to the guidelines issued by public health officials to protect yourself and your loved ones by limiting the spread of the coronavirus.”
