Chickasaw Nation Gaming Facilities Set To Reopen

May 22, 2020

Governor Bill Anoatubby of the Chickasaw Nation said the tribe's gaming facilities will open at 25 percent of capacity on Wednesday, May 27 at 8 a.m.

"We have a responsibility to ensure our facilities remain safe places for our employees and patrons as we reopen," Anoatubby said. "Therefore, our leadership team has developed a comprehensive plan with numerous levels of protection in place to protect the health of our employees and patrons."

Preparations for reopening began weeks ago and include employee testing, making sure the facilities are re-tooled for social distancing and heightened cleaning and disinfecting.

Temperature checks will be performed on all guests entering each facility and guests and employees will be required to wear protective face coverings.

The WinStar Convention Center will remain closed, as will table games, poker, bingo and off-track betting.
